Including the childs family in problem solving a childs challenging behavior is essential. Parents know their child best and they can offer you information including background knowledge that can help you determine the proper strategies to help the child in the classroom. The better you know the child and know the childs home situation the better equipped you will be to respond in the classroom. It is important to work with your families, not against them.
