Children exhibiting challenging behaviors in the early years often lack the social and emotional skills they need to effectively deal with conflicts and strong emotions. These social and emotional skills are essential skills for school readiness and positive long term social and economic outcomes (Raver & Knitzer, 2002)

Biting, hitting and throwing tantrums are just a few behavior struggles for families. Unfortunately, these types of challenging behaviors are what prompt child care programs to expel young students. A nationwide study of expulsion rates in state funded preschool programs demonstrated that children are expelled at a rate of three times more than kindergarten students.
Challenging behaviors can often be resolved with simple strategies that develop social and emotional skills. Our team of experts can offer tools to use regarding your child's behavior at home or at their child care program that will help prepare in school and life.
