Parenting a young child is one of the most demanding jobs we will face. Most of us have little guidance or instructions on what to do, especially when things get tough. We learn as we go along. Each child is different and unique, and some children develop negative behaviors like non-compliance, aggression, and temper tantrums. It sometimes is not easy to understand why these behaviors are happening or how to fix them. These challenging behaviors impact everyone in the family, and you may feel a loss of control. The good news is that you can influence difficult behavior by making small changes in your parenting practice.
