Misbehavior, Challenging Behaviors, Defiance, and Disobedience: What’s a Parent to Do?
We all know how frustrating it is when we ask our child to do something and they don’t do it. It is even more maddening when there is outright defiance or repeated misbehaviors. This presentation will help parents get to the source of their child’s problem behavior and help you come up with solutions that will directly address the problem. We will help parents develop a number of techniques that are likely to improve their child’s behavior.
