Our evidence-based Tip Sheets for early childhood professionals break topics down into two parts: theory (Introducing It) and practice (Applying It). Download these free resources and make sure to check out our other Tip Sheets.

This tip sheet introduces what causes unmanageable stress in children, the role the brain plays, and the impact a child’s unmanageable stress may have on caregiving adults. It also describes what children need to remain emotionally regulated.

This tip sheet introduces the steps adult caregivers can take in preventing stress in a child before challenging behaviors occur, and how to respond when a child uses behavior to communicate feelings.
