Why do some children "lose it" over seemingly insignificant issues? Have you ever been surprised by the perfectly mellow child who suddenly turns into an uncooperative monster, unable to get along with anyone else? What do you do when everyday activities turn into battles no one wins? How do you respond when a child refuses to listen and vehemently declares, "You can't make me!"
Challenging behaviors are like a great mystery. The real story is never what it looks like at first glance. And like a great mystery those challenges cannot be unraveled until we discover the real culprits.
