Clear Direction

“…teacher telling child to do something…”
Lee Havis from GMT, p 1
The clear direction technique is a relatively heavy tool, most often using such safe word phrases as “come over here” or “take my hand”. Without these safe word phrases, it is sometimes quite difficult to effectively use this in a verbal manner without violating the protocol no negative attention to misbehavior; e.g.,“don’t do that” or simply “no”. Sometimes, just repeating a clear direction can bring about a very good result with children.
