Adults can model managing difficult feelings for the children they care for. Resource Guide 4 will assist you in gauging your own stress levels and monitoring your responses to different challenging behaviors.
The Resource Guides in our series are intended for people who work with infants and young children. Most of the Resource Guides are accompanied by handouts with practical ideas and activities related to the topic. The Resource Guides were created by CEED for the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). They are posted with MDE’s permission.
