Are you baffled by your child's behavior?
You love your child deeply. Many days, however, you struggle to understand why he or she behaves the way they do.
Why does he have huge emotional reactions to seemingly small events?
Why does she fearful of new situations or new events?
Why is he SO different from me?
Where does all her energy come from (and how can I harness it)?
Why does he struggle to make friends?
What if you could feel confident in parenting?
What if you had a deep grasp of your child's needs and gifts?
How would you feel when your child's unique reactions to situations actually gave you insight into their needs instead of making you feel baffled?
Think of how empowered you would feel going into a new situation knowing that you prepared your child so she would feel safe and confident, not fearful and nervous.
Consider how different your relationship would be with your child when you learned that the behavior you thought was him "pushing your buttons" was actually the sign of a temperamental need?
