Podcast Tells Us How to Improve Children’s Behavior
I recently had the honor of participating in a podcast about behavioral strategies for children with Brian Powers and Darren McCarthy of Sound Foundations for Parenting.
Brian and Darren interviewed me about my experience with using research-based strategies to help children with challenging or “defiant” behaviors..
In the podcast, I share tips and strategies that can be used by any adult raising, working with, or caring for a child. You can start using the recommended tips with your child, student, or client today.
Will The Behavior Strategies in the Podcast Work?
All the information and strategies shared in the podcast are research and experience-based. As a licensed behavior specialist and certified school psychologist, I have worked with schools, families and communities for more than 20 years. This has allowed me to put a lot of research-based strategies into action to support individuals with behavioral needs. To say the strategies work is an understatement.
If the strategies are not working, then it is time to call in a more intensive level of support such as a mental health professional; however, these strategies should always be the first step (or at least part of an overall treatment plan).
What Is Discussed in the Podcast?
Some of the topics discussed in the podcast include learning more about your child’s interests, using empathy and compassion, utilizing logical and natural consequences, setting boundaries, taking a multisensory approach to learning, building confidence in children, using positive language, having clear expectations, letting children work towards the things they want, and more.

Education and Behavior – Keeping Us On the Same Page with Research-Based Strategies for Children
Rachel Wise is the author and founder of Education and Behavior. Rachel created Education and Behavior in 2014 for adults to have an easy way to access research-based information to support children in the areas of learning, behavior, and social-emotional development. As a survivor of abuse, neglect, and bullying, Rachel slipped through the cracks of her school and community. Education and Behavior hopes to play a role in preventing that from happening to other children. Rachel is also the author of Building Confidence and Improving Behavior in Children: A Guide for Parents and Teachers.
“Children do best when there is consistency within and across settings (i.e., home, school, community). Education and Behavior allows us to maintain that consistency.”
