Hitting! It's one of those behaviours that we see happen SUPER often in the age group 0-5.

A lot of parents and educators fall back on phrases like: 'It hurts to hit!' when they see it … which is fine, and likely not going to have a detrimental effect on their behaviour...

Hello!

In this video I answer a question from one of my lovely followers:

'My question is my almost 2.5 year old can be quite defiant and blatantly ignore instruction. Because she is quite young I generally let it go and will do whatever it is for her or something but I...

'At what age should I be implementing (to a degree) management for behaviour... like when my 10 month old throws things on the floor from her high chair... or spitting food out.. some people say she's too young and some people say start teaching her not to.'

A question that comes up often when I'm working with educators is the challenge of supporting children who place objects in their mouth such as bark chips, small loose play parts, or beads.

I've recently become a firm believer in the idea that if I waited until everything was perfect before releasing it into the world...it would never exist. You'll notice that when you see h...

Hitting! It's one of those behaviours that we see happen SUPER often in the age group 0-5.

A lot of parents and educators fall back on phrases like: 'It hurts to hit!' when they see it … which is fine, and likely not going to have a detrimental effect on their behaviour.

The problem with this idea, however, is that children this age really don't understand the concept of 'hurt'! So prompting them to consider this as a reason to...

Hello!

In this video I answer a question from one of my lovely followers:

'My question is my almost 2.5 year old can be quite defiant and blatantly ignore instruction. Because she is quite young I generally let it go and will do whatever it is for her or something but I worry I'm not teaching her any good behaviour and setting myself up for a bratty child.'

I unpack some ideas around developmentally appropriate behaviour (hint: t...

A question that comes up often when I'm working with educators is the challenge of supporting children who place objects in their mouth such as bark chips, small loose play parts, or beads.

I understand this is a big concern, particularly in an early childhood setting when you have a number of children to supervise, choking can be a very real and valid fear! A really common response to this behaviour that I hear often is 'Take...

I've recently become a firm believer in the idea that if I waited until everything was perfect before releasing it into the world...it would never exist. You'll notice that when you see how awful the quality of video and audio is here... also the addition of Lyra makes it interesting!! But you know what, it exists.

Stay tuned for when we one day g...
