The purpose of this study was to examine, through in-class observations, the messages preschool teachers use against children's undesirable behaviors, in order to warn the children and remove negative behaviors. The study group consisted of six preschool teachers. The messages used by preschool teachers against undesirable behaviors of children were observed with the "unstructured and nonparticipant observation" technique. Notes were taken, and voice recorder was used for recording data. In the analysis of the data obtained in the study, content analysis from qualitative research methods was used. According to the findings of the study, it was determined that in the face of the undesirable behaviors of children preschool teachers most commonly use solution messages from you-messages and least commonly use I-messages.
