Description:

Your road map through the ups and downs of early childhood Almost every child, at some point during their early years won't listen, will throw a tantrum, will be mean or aggressive, shy or withdrawn, be a picky eater, and more. As a parent, you know that differences in children's learning styles and temperaments are a given. However, when any of these problem behaviors become the 'norm' for a child, a red flag should go up. If they affect a child's ability to be happy, relate to others, and go about his daily life, there may be a real problem. "Is it a Big Problem, or a Little Problem?" will help you to determine: -The size of the problem -How to manage problems on your own with practical tips and strategies -When, if at all, to seek a professional evaluation and what to do in the meantime Learn when to worry, when not to worry, and what to do. This book will be your essential guide to decoding your child's behavior and navigating the early years of childhood.
