QUICK TIP: Ask Yourself "What is my Child Trying to Communicate?"

Chances are, if your child is having a meltdown/tantrum or you find yourself in a power struggle with your little one, he or she is trying to communicate something to you. Before reacting, take a moment to ask yourself "What is really going on here?" Rarely do children misbehave for no reason at all- they are asking for your help!

Application: Do a simple HALT check- Is my child Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired? The answer to this question will provide some insight and allow for you to respond more productively.
