So helpful and so simple!

As a working mom, it’s hard enough just getting through the day and when dealing with behaviors it just adds more stress to the day. I love the fact that you cover various age ranges when discussing topics being that I have a toddler at home and I don’t always have the time to come up with strategies. Thanks Dr. Maguire for your advice!
