Honoring Intentions: A New Approach to Behavior Management


Is your child struggling with difficult behaviors? Maybe they have trouble sharing, are hitting, pushing & biting, whining, or not listening to you. Learn to understand the common motives behind your child’s behavior, such as a need for attention, control, holding onto negative emotions, or a lack of developmental readiness. And learn techniques for teaching prosocial behaviors that help them take care of themselves and be in community. Bring your questions and your difficult situations, so we can work through them together in a large and small group setting.
