Adjusting to Preschool

Some children find it stressful to start school, and they can act their stress out through negative behavior. If your child is misbehaving in preschool, talk with his teacher about creating a behavior modification plan. In this plan, the teacher would keep track of positive and negative behavior, and you would give consequences or rewards at home as needed. Some schools will also allow children to attend for a shortened portion of the day, which can help them to adjust more gradually.
