Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how pedagogues work with children that express acting out behavior in pre-school. The research questions are:

  • How do the interviewed pedagogues define children that express extroverted behavior in preschool, and what is the reason for the behavior?
  • How do the pedagogues work to ease daily activities for these children in preschool?
  • Which methods do the pedagogues use to approach these children in the optimal manner in different situations?

This study is based on four qualitative interviews with preschool teachers, after-school teachers and nurses from two different preschools. The results of this study are analyzed through the sociocultural theories of Vygotskij and subsequent terms, but also with regards to other articles and scientific literature of interest. The results of this study indicate that the reason for acting out behavior can be due to environmental flaws, or factors within a child. In their work the pedagogues practice different methods. To e.g. calm the child, one may listen to or confirm the child’s emotions, and in conflict situations it is important that the pedagogue remains calm, to reduce the risk of emotional contagion. It was also evident that a well-structured day with distinct routines, in combination with a physical environment at the preschool that is tailored to the child’s own preconditions, better prepares the child for future activities. This study indicates that pedagogues enable common games and activities, to make it possible for children with acting out behavior to train their social competencies with other children. This is achieved with the aid of a present pedagogue that guides the child stepwise so that the child understands and predicts the consequences of the actions, but also understands the limits of behavior.
