Toddlers in general are non-compliant and can be unpleasant specially when they say "NO", hit, bite, pull hair, interrupt cell phone conversations, constantly whine, throw tantrums in public places, scream during a migraine, and above all… throw food at you or across the floor. Enough is enough, what do we do about it? If you are ready to throw the towel, STOP! Reflect on the fact that this child is a gift and wonderfully created for a greater purpose. Our goal is to recognize these behaviors one at a time and transform them from a radical rock concert to a symphony orchestra. Each behavior is an instrument and you (mother, father, grandparent, or guardian) are the conductor. As this blog evolves, so will the composition of your musical piece (household) evolve too.
FIRST we must understand the composer: YOU! Stay tuned as we'll have more details soon (Infant Mental Health Journal article published in Jan-Feb, 2012).
