The Connect the Dots video series teaches you how to address challenging behaviors of young children in four easy-to-remember steps.
The videos are brought to you by Jenn at EC Learn Northern Kentucky.
Connect the Dots
Connect the Dots provides a common language and a common approach to addressing challenging behaviors in a way that builds strong social and emotional skills in young children ages 2 to 5.
The four steps include:
- Ensuring supportive environments
- Encouraging positive behaviors
- Emphasizing positive discipline
- Embracing unique strengths.
Watch the video for each dot below. You can also enter to win a giveaway bag full of items from each dot!
Am I acting out because I don’t feel safe in my surroundings? Do I have a sense of control?
Ensure supportive environments so the child feels safe, prepared and ready to succeed.
Am I acting out because we haven’t spent quality time together? Am I seeking connection to adults or peers?
Encourage positive behaviors to help the child link positive behaviors to healthy relationships.
Am I acting out because I haven’t learned how to handle my feelings and needs? Have you taught me a better way?
Emphasize positive discipline by teaching appropriate behaviors to meet the child’s needs.
Am I acting out because I haven’t learned how to embrace and use my unique strengths?
Embrace unique strengths through nurturing individual differences and natural temperament.

Due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases and Governor Andy Beshear’s recent mandate, the Friends Book Sales scheduled in November and December are canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please visit www.cc-pl.org/coronavirus for current information.
There is a Friends Book Sale every Saturday, from 9 am- 5 pm, through Saturday, Dec. 12. The sale is in the Friends Room on the lower level of our Newport Branch.
All sales are bag sales. Buy a $4 bag from the Friends and fill it with any books from the entire sale room. A large selection of items are available. There is a 2-bag limit per visit into the Friends Room but multiple visits per day are permitted and encouraged.
The Friends Room has a maximum capacity limit due to social distancing requirements. We will monitor capacity in the Friends Room and allow entrance as others leave. Masks are required for entrance. No outside bags or boxes permitted.
Use the Facebook event link below to invite your friends and family! The book sales are the perfect time to do some holiday shopping.
The Friends of the Library are not currently accepting donations due to the need to quarantine items for four days. Unfortunately, they do not have the space available to do so. We are hoping that the November and December sales will clear out the Friends Room enough to begin accepting donations again.
After careful consideration, our annual donation drive Drop Your Drawers – normally held in November and December – has been suspended until 2021. Read more
