strong-willed children

Raising a strong-willed child can be unbelievably draining. Dealing with resistance and big emotions and big reactions can take everything out of us. 

But parenting strong-willed children can be much less negative when we stop focusing on changing their behavior and start focusing on giving them what they need.

  • What you can do proactively to improve your child’s behavior and self-esteem both now and in the future 
  • A strategy for handling your child’s behavior in the moment that will help you and your child feel more in control
