Everyone Needs Attention: Helping Young Children Thrive

Attention seeking is seen as misbehavior in young children, and giving them attention is often times interpreted as reinforcement of bad behavior. In this presentation, we learn how we manage our emotions when children seek our attention. Self-regulation requires small children to go it alone emotionally, and learn not to reach out or lean on adults who care for and educate them. Developing a balance of needing attention and learning to delay gratification can be taught through connection and relationship, not by exclusion and punishment. As we try to sift through appropriate strategies, we first get in touch with how we feel about the child’s attention-seeking behavior: What presses our buttons, what makes us anxious, how does our worldview or mindset affect how we respond? All these factors will influence the strategies we choose to respond to a child’s attention-seeking behavior.

While we hope you attend our sessions for the content, we know certificates are important. A link to a short evaluation is shared at the end of each live on-line session. Complete this evaluation, and a personalized PDF certificate of participation is generated and emailed to you. In-service training requirements vary depending on location. Below, you’ll find info on where our certificates are currently accepted. We’re always working to gain approval in more locations.


United States


Canada

  • Alberta | We have been informed that Alberta does not have a pre-approval process and that our certificates contain the required information to be accepted as in-service training.
  • British Columbia | Explorations Early Learning was told that in BC, “professional development is assessed on a case by case basis after the workshop has been completed, and the certificate has been received.” Our certificates contain all the information required for approval, and our sessions cover topics that are traditionally approved.

Australia

We have not yet had time to dig into approval requirements for in-service trainings in any Australian states. It’s on the to-do list.
