Parenting Strategies: Childhood Milestones and Challenging Behaviors

Is your child having trouble coping with change, or have they just hit the terrible twos? What message is your child sending with their behavior? What milestones should you be looking for in their development? We got to ask an expert, and start the new year with some new parenting tools!Jen Kniffin-Turner, a mental health consultant and therapist in private practice, shares advice on how to deal with typical (and not-so-typical) behaviors, including temper tantrums and defiance. She also addressed developmental milestone concerns, sensory behaviors, and trauma processing. The more we understand our young children's behavior, the better we can support them.
