When it comes to the topic of children’s development and behavior, there’s lots of labels and we all have our own ideas of what’s normal, don’t we!
During my career as a childcare educator, I often found myself looking after children that were labeled with children’s behavior problems such as ADHD and I’ve often found it tough knowing how best to support them.
I was thrilled this week to speak with Dr Nerissa Bauer, a behavioral pediatrician and the owner and blogger of Let’s Talk Kids Health.
Nerissa had some great insights and shared some fascinating experiences from her own parenting journey and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her. I really like how she thinks outside of the box and encourages parents to be creative and meet their children where they are.
