Abstract:This descriptive study highlights the experiences of eleven child care teachers with preschoolers who had persistent challenging behaviors. This qualitative study included an in-depth interview with each teacher, member checking, and a follow up discussion with each participant to clarify any ambiguous participant comments. Results revealed three major themes: (a) the impact of challenging behavior on the classroom experiences of children and adults, (b) teachers' confidence and stress, and (c) strategies used by teachers when working with children with challenging behaviors. Future research ideas and implications for teachers, parents, child care administrators, and agencies who work with or on behalf of young children with challenging behaviors are discussed.
