Working in the early years, you have undoubtedly encountered children with all kinds of different temperaments. And, no doubt, you have likely worked with some tots whose temperaments would be described as “difficult.” What do we make of kids like that, or more to the point, how do we work with them? Dr. Stuart Shanker reframes the idea of difficult temperament and much more in TMC’s online course for early childhood educators. This course will show you how to revolutionize your practice by understanding, and responding to, the unique and sometimes hidden stressors that shape the caregiving and learning experiences—and hence, the temperaments of the children you work with.
