Growing Better Behavior- March 2021

Similar to plants, children need just the right conditions to grow better behavior. Instead of sunlight, water, and good soil; children need clear expectations, positives sprinkled throughout their day, and better tools to manage their behavior and emotions. In addition, it is crucial to identify the "why" behind the challenging behavior to pinpoint exactly where your child needs support.
