Have you ever heard… “your why should make you cry?”
Well it did, every day for months. I had the hardest preschool class one year. And I was on my own in it.
I was having the hardest internal struggle. I needed my classroom to function, but I wasn’t about to give up on the kids who needed more.
Guys, I’m not exaggerating when I said I cried.
I cried for the kids and I cried for me. It is stressful.
Not knowing what to do next, feeling like you’ve tried everything to earn trust, compliance, peaceful transitions…
Challenging behavior is hard for the parents and caregivers,
but it’s also REALLY hard on the kids.
Do you think that they want to scream their head off and throw a tantrum when they can’t finish their art project?
Do you think they feel good when they whine for the thing they want?
Would you believe me if I told you…You don’t just have to “survive this stage.“
Guess what? You can even come out of this stage STRONGER in your relationship and with a child STRONGER in problem solving and communication skills.
There are SO many tools I can give you.
All you have to do is START.
