Parents, teachers, preschool and child-care staff and health professionals each bring a unique and valuable set of skills to a child and his or her family. At times it can be frustrating and tiring to work with children who are fidgety, easily distracted, messy, clumsy and disruptive to others. It can also be difficult to support these children and their families to manage their challenging behaviours at home and in the community. Understanding where to go, who to ask and how to access further advice or support is often complex for professionals and families alike.
This resource has been developed to support you in your role, encourage you to think differently about children’s behaviour, and to give you another set of tools for your professional toolbox.
"This book has helped me communicate with everyone. A friend from mothers group lent me the book to give me some ideas as new parent. It's certainly been great to help me understand my daughter, but it's also helped me understand my husband and the high school students I teach. Everyone should know about this."
