The little boy pictured in this photo is having a bad day, and he has not yet learned the social skills that would facilitate his ability to negotiate socially challenging encounters with peers. In this situation, he wanted a toy that another child had, so he was immediately redirected to the “Angry Jar”.
The purpose of this intervention is to:
• Redirect the child in an effort to avoid misbehaviors such as hitting, biting or kicking another child
• The child learns to articulate frustrations with the assistance of his teacher
• The child will eventually learn to use verbal communication to problem solve challenging situations
