Can I let you in on a little secret?
I love dealing with challenging behavior.
I know, I’m crazy.
Maybe it’s the special education teacher in me, but there’s just something about a difficult, makes-you-think, keeps-you-on-your-toes behavior that thrills me. I love the challenge of figuring out how to handle it, and I love the rush of joy when I start to see some progress.
I deal with crazy behaviors on a daily basis at work, so it’s second nature to me to deal with a toddler tantrum or two when I get home in the evenings. Over my years of being a behavior specialist and teacher, I’ve learned a lot about how to handle these rough behaviors, so I’m spilling a few of my secrets for dealing with toddler behavior today!
