for the behaviour plan to be ieJliStiC it must be reasonable and achievable_
A great plan is no use if it sirrtply cannot be done with the resources that are available_
In certain eases it might be worthwhile attempting to access external funds in order to irnprernent the plan effectively.
An additional constraint in certain areas {e.g. outside mptropolitan service providers) could be lack of Brews to specialist services, trained staff and expertise.
Human resources
It is essential that there it sufficient staff with enough time and necessary skills to carry out the plan_
ft might be possible for the chifcl's family to volunteer time to be involved during care time.

Performance Criteria 3.7 Ensure plan considers relevant cultural practices far responding to behaviour
It mint be recognised that children receive their primary sOtialisation at home. This means they often bring with them a first language and cultural ways of interacting that may differ from the mainstream culture. This can cause misinterpretation of the child's behaviour. It must be a cknowl ad .g Ecl that adults interact differently with children in different cultures and often hold different sets of belierb about children's behaviour and development.
There are also different cuitiu r di expectations regarding behaviour. Respectiri8 the cultural knnwledge of the child and their family can he enhanced by encouraging family involvement

It is the educator's role, while children are in their care, to guide them physically, intellectually, emotionally and soda Hy.
There are great benefits to all concerned (children colleagues and families) when educators understand the causes of inappropriate behaviour and are equipped with strategies to respond immediately and positively_ There are many theories and opinion$ on the best way To guide children's behaviour and to help them reach the goal of inner self-control.
However, armed with knowledge and understanding, and rea lising that behaviour management is a process, you can develop an approach that works best for you_ What works fur you will depend on your age, experience, attitudes, values and beliefs and your personality. These will influence how you guide behaviour and each educator may handle a situation differently because of this_ So, to manage behavour effectively, you also need knowledge about yourself and your own values_
Guidelines should be established to assist children:
• To learn respect for themselves, others and property
• To safeguard the safety of themselves and others_
^ To develop self-control
• In learning to take responsibility for their own b.ehayiour

School age children
Children at this age should be encouraged to take ownership of the guidelines and limits that are set Thiq means working collaboratively with other children to decide on what is reasonable hehiviour and why or why not•and what the consequences would be. Children can take much more responsibility for establishing the guidelines at this !stage. Children should be involved in ongoing evaluation and review of the guidelines that have been set. Children can also be involved in creating written forms of the guidelines and displaying them prominently as rem i nd erg.
Performance Criteria 1.2 Establish guidelines in consultation with families that are relevant to the culture arid background of the children and policies of the service
Every child's behaviour is strongly influenced by their family and cultural background, even when they are away from home and in another env' ronrrieJ tr lucli ;05 a child care centre, the guidelines that are established for their behaviour must be culturally relevant and take into are-Aunt the individual circurnstance$ of all the children.

effort to reach a balance between al/ the different cultures of the children attending your service provider, it will be time well spent and a valuable experience for all involved. The result will be the establishment of guldelines that are culturally relevant and do not disadvantage any of the children.
The family's valUeS and beliefs will probably be the only ones the child has experienced previously. This includes religious., cultural and personal beliefs. Educators should not make assumptions the children's family backgrounds as there are so many possible variations. The more time spent in getting to know each child personally (and the level of involvement of their family), the greater the depth of understanding for each child's circumstances.
An important factor in Und erstaadin8 children's behaviour and ensuring that guidelines are established which arcs relevant to the background of all the children, will be an awareness of parenting Myles_ Children could have very different expectations for behaviour az home. A long-term goal for educators would be to work collaboratively with the families of all the children; however, not all families have the time nor the inclination to be involved to this level.
Service provider policies
Behaviour guidelines must be establisly!d in line with the policies of the service provider. Each service provider must have clear and accessible policies and procedures to guide behaviour management. Behaviour policy should be intorrncl by the service provider's own philosophy arid the legal and ethical framework at the international, national and date or territory lever. This includes children's services r el u lotions and licensing authorities,. safety laws, dozy of care responsibilities and the underlying principles of the United Na LIM 5 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and the Australian Zarly Childhood Association (AECA) Code of Ethic.,

The behaviour that is causing concern will need to be defined precisely. Griner -al terms such as 'disruptive' or 'destructive' are ambiguous. and do not provide adequate behavioural description, A clear arid precise description includes who., what, where and when, for example.. 'Sally throws food at other children during most meals-times at the service provider, after she has finished eating'.
It is innport.iiik to realise that the behaviour may not necessarily be a problem for the child, but a problem for the educators and those involved with the child. The behaviour can in tact be very effective for thrt child and serve a pu rpose In meeting their needs, for example., gets attention or releases anger. The onus is on the adults involved to work out what function for the child the behaviour Is fulfilling.
The N.5‘.6./ Department of Community Services advocates taking a 'functional approach' to challenging behaviour. The bask to this approach is to understand the reasons for the child's behaviour. It assumes that the behaviour provides a function (or serves a purpo_sp) for the child. Those involved then work together to discover the underlying reasons and to find alternative, more socially acceptable ways for the child to have those needs met.
This process is undertaken in an organised way, focusing on both the child themselves and the context in which they operate. information Is collected including background information from all those involved and observations anti analysis of behaviour from everyone's perspective, including the child's. Regardless of any special needs that a child may have, the process for managing behaviour is the same. It is a central assumption of this approach that behaviour can be changed and that the changsc will be maintained if the child's needs are met.
The purpose of gathering information to understand the reasons behind the behdvin LIE and to develop a plan that aims to meet the needs of the child Etehaviour occurs in context

Ways of gathering information
The information can be used to identify the source of problems, gain a more hol is-dc and deeper understanding of the child and their development, to document and monitor progress and changes and to record actual examples of behaviour_
Information can be gathered by:
• Informal sharing of information, ideas, observations
• Meetings between educator /teacher / service provider staff and parents J families
• Staff meetings
^ Discussions with colleagues
• Structured observation of the child irk different situations
• Observations by others to allow comparisons of results and interpretations
^ Systematic evaluation of the environment and poccible environmental triggers
