Pretend You Are A Light Switch!®- FREE Resource
Sometimes we unknowingly reinforce unwanted behaviors, and then try to correct behaviors right at the moment kids are least able to learn. Common behavioral reasons for unwanted patterns of behavior are attention and avoidance. The “Light Switch” Technique will help you understand brain development so you know how to de-escalate situations more effectively,  WHEN to teach your child “the lesson”, and how to react without inadvertently reinforcing the behavior. This strategy supports your child to develop self-regulation and calming skills.

Teach Better Behavior With Fewer Words – FREE Resource
De-escalation begins when we reduce our language! When we think of teaching our child about behavior or social skills, we generally think about explaining it to them, reading a book about it, telling them the rules, or talking about emotions.  When it comes to behavior, simply explaining the expectation isn’t sufficient to result in the desired behavior change. Children learn the quickest if they actually practice using the correct behavior when their brains are in a position to learn (we call this “light switch on”). 

My Child Doesn’t Respond to Rewards! Capitalize on Your Child’s Natural Motivation! – FREE Resource

Everything is a Battle or Negotiation with my Child! – Purchase now!
Tired of your child’s constant arguing, negotiating, or otherwise battling your parenting? If picking battles results in unwanted behaviors, it is likely that you need to pick the battle, but in different way at another time. The battle is indication that your child is missing a skill. We will share strategies to nip this pattern and help you identify WHEN and HOW to pick the right battles!

My Child Constantly Pushes My Boundaries! – Purchase now!
Teach boundaries to children through choices! When you offer two options does your child say, “Both”, “Neither”, or suggest a 3rd option? The ability to make a choice when presented with options is one of the first behavior regulation skills to develop. Parents need children to pick one of the choices offered to maintain parental boundaries. 

Combat Impulsivity by Teaching Your Child Self-Control! – Purchase now!
We are raising children in a society that puts a high value on things that are fast and convenient. Children rarely have to wait for things. Because of this, we have to teach self-control to children by intentionally creating opportunities for our children to learn to wait for things, accept no for an answer, and move on when it is time to end something fun.

Solve Your Child’s Sleep Disruptions! – Purchase now!
Did you know that parents who receive sleep education before a child is 3 months old report smoother roads than those who lack this education? There are 6 common sleep disruptions in early childhood and most children experience more than one simultaneously, which means that any sleep plan NEEDS to address EVERY reason the child’s sleep is disrupted. Sleep problems don’t have to be the norm…whether your child is 3 months or 3 years of age!  (Video only)

I Expect My Child to Obey and Show Respect. – Purchase now!
Expectation is not a teaching strategy! You can expect your child to learn to swim, or ride a bike, but if you don’t provide the opportunity to practice, your child will not learn those physical skills. The same goes for behavior. Your child needs to practice the correct behavior with help, and be given ample opportunities to continue to practice the correct behavior. 

Why Ignoring Your Child’s Unwanted Behavior Doesn’t WorkPurchase now!
Behavior always serves a purpose or children wouldn’t continue to use it. Sometimes children use their behavior to get stuff like toys, treats, information, communication, or attention. Sometimes they use their behavior to get out of stuff they don’t want to do or things that are difficult for them. “Only” ignoring rarely works, even if attention is one of the reasons for unwanted behavior!

Don’t Teach the ABC’s During a Tantrum! – Purchase now!
So often we try to correct unwanted behavior and teach the new behavior “in the heat of the moment.” The brain isn’t wired to learn new information when it is firing. In fact, it is designed to actively block any input to PROTECT the child who doesn’t yet have all the skills to begin with. (Audio only)

How Can I Help My Child At School When It Doesn’t Happen At Home? – Purchase now!
It can be hard as a parent to understand why a child has difficulty at school but doesn’t have that same difficulty at home. Parents may learn what pushes children’s buttons and inadvertently avoid or accommodate those situations. Teachers or coaches cannot be as flexible or accommodate in the same way because the environments are very different. We can create opportunities at home to teach those missing skills.

Everyone Says This Behavior Is Normal, but I’m Struggling to Parent My Toddler! – Purchase now!
When “normal” childhood behavior becomes a pattern such that you aren’t enjoying time with your child anymore, it isn’t normal! It is a learned pattern of behavior. The longer your child practices unwanted behavior, the better they get at it. Teach your child during the younger years to prevent patterns of unwanted behavior as your child enters school age.
