Hi, the reply given by midge99 is very helpful.
Can you recall examples from your setting/placement where conflict between children can almost be predicted/expected - two children wanting the singular new toy car, three children each with a doll and only 2 blankets to wrap them in. One child covers ears and shouts loudly whilst a song is being played on a cd player. Plate of food is thrown across a room after a meal is served. Group of children charge around a room knocking others over. Child laughs and kicks an adult during a conversation. A child feeling unwell, experiencing bereavement may respond more emotionally to situations than would ordinarily be expected.
These are all possible behaviours that proactive practice can help to resolve.
Tug of war over resources - evaluate what's happening, consider purchasing/sourcing additional items to minimise arguments, remove the originals or work out how everyone can resolve problems by organising sharing. Discuss dietary needs & food preferences with child/ren, parents, and plan food sampling activities to expand variety of tastes & textures, ensure foods are served that do not trigger negative behaviours.
Less engaging environments can produce 'stormin campaigners' as children occupy space with gross motor/whole body play. Ask the children what they're playing, see what resources would focus their play and help make it less intrusive to others. Is there a large space already available for play that children have moved away from?
