May 2017 Talks on Tuesdays

This training will focus on ways to prevent challenging behavior in the home setting. We will define challenging behavior and social-emotional competence, and we will discuss why young children demonstrate challenging behaviors. Four parenting practices for preventing challenging behaviors will be outlined, and resources will be shared regarding what families and providers can do when challenging behaviors begin or when they continue to occur.
