Welcome!

It is the mission of Behave Your Best, LLC to empower parents and early childhood professionals in the Twin Cities metro area to transition from the current status quo, reactive, punishment-based discipline, to more proactive, positive teaching of skills that are designed to prevent or replace the typical challenges of early childhood.

We already know that tantrums, listening, whining, hitting, biting, and throwing things are a “normal” part of a child’s development. Our approach encourages parents like you to educate yourselves with simple, evidence-based, proactive, and positive strategies BEFORE your child’s behavior warrants it.

 

Are you waiting for your child’s behavior to get bad enough?

 

But don’t worry, if you are just learning about our approach and your child is already presenting you with daily unwanted behaviors, we are more than equipped to help! We teach you why your child is engaging in the unwanted behavior, skills you can teach your child to prevent or replace that pattern of unwanted behavior, as well as how to teach your child those new skills. If this is just what you’ve been looking for and want to learn more, we offer each family a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation to answer questions you may have after attending a live event or webinar, or if you aren’t sure if our services are appropriate for your needs. We reserve the right to refuse in-home consultation based on our availability, your geographic location, the nature of your needs, and/or your ability to pay for in-home consultation. Click here to request a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation your appointment with our owner Jamie Waldvogel today!

We have filmed our hallmark approach “Pretend You Are A Light Switch!™”

Children aren’t born with all of the skills necessary to successfully interact with the world so we can expect that they will display unwanted behaviors as they attempt to figure it all out. This strategy is the hallmark of our approach at Behave Your Best so we decided it deserved a workshop all its own! Parents need to be equipped with evidence-based strategies to transform those challenging moments of unwanted behavior into powerful behavioral teaching moments.
