Emotional and behavioral issues are of real concern for increasing numbers of families. And the evidence is mounting that when stress is high for the child, the parent, and the provider, good support is needed for all.

Instead of telling us how they feel, they signal to us through difficult behaviors–tears, tantrums, whining, and aggression. Learn the latest developmental neuroscience and valuable new skills for supporting children and parents in your child care center as you get the time and support you need to release stress and come up with solutions for challenging behaviors.
