Fighting, Hitting, and Biting: Challenging Behaviors in Toddlers and Preschoolers

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 from 8 to 9 pm

The toddler and preschooler years, ages 1 through 5, are a time of great change and growth. Children in this age group are beginning to learn how to manage their emotions, their bodies, and their relationships. Even 5-year-olds are far from perfect at it. When things are not going their way, they become frustrated and angry and often yell and scream. These behaviors are hard enough for parents, but the most challenging behaviors are when young children hit, bite, or fight with another child.

Join us to explore:

  • Why these flare-ups happen and understand how children's bodies and brains are activated in the moment
  • How to teach your child acceptable outlets for frustration
  • How to respond as a parent in a respectful, effective way
  • What to do when your preschooler acts aggressively toward a baby or younger sibling
Your enrollment includes access to the video recording, an audio version that you can listen to podcast-style, and handouts.
