“Being understood by a person you love is one of our most powerful yearnings. The need for understanding is part of what makes us human. When our feelings are validated, we know that we’re not alone.”           – Claudia M  Gold

  • Managing Difficult Behaviour

    If you’re familiar with the “terrible-twos”
    or “terrible-threes” with your child,
    then you’ll be familiar with the difficult task
    of responding to your child’s behaviour.
    Get some tips on how to respond to your child in a
    positive manner.

  • The Importance of Play

    Play is an essential part of a child’s
    development and has been shown to be
    an essential part of early learning. Playing is
    one of the many ways young children learn and
    discover new things.

  • Responding to Whines

    Young children often whine to get attention
    from the parents. Sometimes it is not a
    concious strategy on the part of child but rather
    a learned behaviour from the parents. Usually
    whinining occurs because the child is not getting
    what they want right away. There are effective and
    non-effective ways of getting the child to respond in
    a more positive way. Get the tips here!
