How to Help Your Beautiful Child’s Not So Beautiful Behaviors

My five-year-old was melting down fast. I had to respond in a way that would meet him. I felt like I was walking on egg shells, waiting for the ticking time bomb to go off.

How to Help Your Child's Challenging Behavior (1)

Then I recalled a conversation I had with my talented friend, Dayna, from Lemon Lime Adventures. She reminded me to acknowledge his strong emotions and qualities for exactly what they are. So I took a deep breath and step towards him. I sat down and made sure he could see my eyes:

“You really like to know how we’re going to spend our days. You’re always prepared and organized. You like to have a plan. I like that about you.” I said calmly and gently.

He stopped chewing on his finger and looked at me. Then he let me hold him. We figured out our next moves together and went on with the day.

It is moments like this one when I am grateful for the guidance I have received from Dayna.

Does the scene sound familiar?

Have you ever wished you could understand your child better?

Do you feel your kid seems a little “too sensitive”, or maybe your child gets aggressive without warning?

Do you wish you knew how to respond better in these moments?

Do you wish you could help your child manage these strong emotions?

You are absolutely not alone.

In fact, I often hear this concern from parents and teachers. They wish they knew WHY kids acted the way they did. They wish they had all the answers to make parenting and educating easier.

What if I told you that I have that secret?

So often when I start to talk to other parents about struggles they are having their children, our conversations come around to behaviors.

It is the most outward part of our children that we see and the one thing that can leave us without answers.

Surprisingly many of the behaviors you see that frustrate you or bewilder you are directly connected to your child’s emotions.

Since emotions and “misbehaviors” can be the root of miscommunication with children, I wanted to share this quick FREE 3-Part Video Series just for you offered by my friend, Dayna.

The Calm the Chaos Workshop  was created by Dayna. She is a National Board Certified early childhood teacher and mom of three with over 15 years of experience with children’s behaviors both in and out of the classroom.

She has taken her 15 years in the classroom, 11 years as a parent to a worried child, and extensive brain-based research from experts in the field and created a resource that puts all the information you need to calm the chaos at your fingertips.

This Workshop will help you dig into using your child’s emotions and behaviors to make you a better parent and teacher.
