Early childhood is a crucial area of development, where many social skills and basic motor functions are learned and retained. It is fundamental for any childcare worker to understand what is and is not acceptable behavior, and how to properly guide the child into appropriate mannerisms also knowing when and how to punish certain behaviors.
