In today’s blog, I would like to share some resources that can help you create a supportive environment for your child. Structuring the environment may not be enough to prevent all behavior problems, but it can create a nice foundation to build-on with more specific tools/techniques.
The following links are from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They include articles about structuring your child’s world, as well as, video examples and downloadable tools. Go to: www.cdc.gov/parents to find more helpful parenting tips and tools.
