Questioning

“…teacher asking the child something …often used to resolve fantasy misbehavior.”
Lee Havis from GMT , p.3
Asking a question e.g., “What are you doing?”, can often stimulate constructive thinking in children, perhaps initiating some useful or necessary interaction to resolve some fantasy misbehavior. Usually, this questioning begins a verbal dialogue, which you can follow up with further questions, reflective language and clear direction, to gently return children to present-moment reality. When verbal conversation is still not sufficient, you may then have to interact physically with children using the heavy polishing tool of cooperative touching.
