At our leaders training on Friday night we highlighted our top twelve tips for behaviour management:

  1. Pray
  2. Focus on the issue at hand
  3. Be pro-active
  4. Be aware of flash-points in your programme
  5. Give progressive warnings and consequences
  6. Use Time Out
  7. Remove children/young people from the group when disciplining
  8. Listen
  9. Ask the child or young person what they think should happen
  10. Don’t discipline out of anger
  11. See them through God’s eyes
  12. Don’t be proud

All of this is underpinned by being positive – positive praise and a positive outlook.

What other tips would you add?
