Rethinking Challenging Behavior
What we commonly identify as misbehavior in young children is really mistaken behavior. By shifting our perception of challenging behaviors we can respond in nurturing and supportive ways. This engaging session will help you reframe behavior and your responses so that children get their needs met with less chaos. You’ll leave with strategies and resources to empower you when supporting children with challenging behavior.
