PBIS World- Managing Child Behavioral Problems

At a loss with your child’s behavior? 

We all see it, or it has happened to you! You are at the grocery store and you look down the aisle. A child is screaming at the top of their lungs. They are grabbing items off the shelves or throwing items in the cart while the adult is frantically picking the items up and trying to correct the behavior without drawing too much attention. Embarrassment, exhaustion, and anxiety is written all over this situation. What do you do?

Don’t worry, we are here to help guide you in the right direction. is an excellent resource to help get you started with identifying your child’s behaviors and how to address them. While this resource is typically used by educators, parents and caregivers would also find this site to be helpful. This site doesn’t provide hard fast rules to solve your problems. However, PBIS (positive behavior interventions and supports) allows parents, caregivers, and educators to identify, implement, and evaluate responses to a child’s behavior. Interventions are addressed in 3 Tiers. These interventions show different ways to implement and produce behavior changes for your child.  As you move through this site, it guides you, the parent and/or caregiver, through the different levels of these interventions depending on the severity of that behavior.  This site covers a wide variety of behaviors including defiance, negative attitude, sadness/depression, poor coping skills and many more. Remember, while these interventions and strategies are a great place to start, you know your child better than anyone. Evaluate your personal situation and adjust these strategies to fit your culture and child’s temperament. If the intervention doesn’t feel right or you need further assistance by a professional please seek out those options. Check out the get started page PBIS World- Getting Started to help ease your anxiety and get your child back on track to success!

Hi Everyone! I am so excited that you found our page! My name is Lauren McNeely and I am a recent Post Baccalaureate and Masters graduate in Early Childhood Education. My first degree is in business where I spent 8 years in the Finance industry. Numbers and money are still my things; however, I am excited to share this knowledge with young kiddos and get them excited to learn about life! I am a new teacher to the field and feel I have found my true calling. I have worked with several incredible individuals on projects intertwining social-emotional learning, culturally relevant pedagogy, and STEM inside the classroom.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two chocolate labs Whiskey, and Hunter and our cat, Tobi. We have a little one on the way which makes me even more excited about this endeavor. Helping YOU and YOUR children! Thank you for stopping by and we look forward to having you alongside us.
