Greetings parenting trendsetters!
I started Behave Your Best in 2011 to empower parents and early childhood educators with evidence-based behavioral strategies. One way that we do that is with parent and teacher workshops. Workshops are often inspiring, but making the leap from hearing the inspirational content to effectively applying it to real situations when children are engaged in unwanted behavior is usually challenging for parents and teachers. This is why we provide in-home consultation to parents and group consultation to teachers in child care centers and preschools. We demonstrate how the strategies will apply to your situation in your home or classroom with your children or those that you serve. We then watch parents and teachers implement the recommendations and provide feedback. We follow up to be sure the recommendations are effectively impacting behavior.
Another way to get our content out to the world has been through social media. If you haven’t followed us on Facebook, please click here to go to our page. We appreciate your support!
If you’ve been following us on social media, you may have noticed our weekly #MondayMessage video posts that I began posting in April 2016. Not unlike our approach to parenting and early childhood education, we are thinking outside the box when it comes to sharing our exclusive content and education related to parenting and child behavior. Admittedly, recording these videos doesn’t come easy to me, but the more I do it, the more comfortable I feel with having these weekly conversations with you all!
My main goal with the video posts is to educate the world on who we are and what we have to offer the world. We realize that it hasn’t been the norm to hire a behavioral consultant to support you with your child’s behavior, so we realize that we need to educate our society before Behave Your Best can be a household name!
Another goal of the weekly video posts is to have a conversation with you. We are parents too and we live and breathe these techniques day in and day out with our children. The recommendations we make when consulting with families are effective because we have not only implemented them on a regular basis with our children, but we have successfully taught other parents to use the techniques throughout their routine interactions with their children.
My goal with this monthly blog is to create a space to have a conversation with you! We want to hear what challenges you are experiencing during your daily, routine interactions with your children so we are able to provide resources that are meaningful and valuable your family. If you could change one thing about your child’s behavior, what would that be? Comment below!
