NAN: Finding the Child’s Currency

When guiding a child’s behavior, it’s important to understand what motivates her. Each child will have different motivators. For some children, getting a sticker on a sticker chart will be a huge positive motivator for the child to make acceptable behavioral choices.

Knowing what motivates a child can help a nanny to choose the most effective tools to guide her behavior.
