Your Perfect Child
Diana Boggia has a masters degree in education with licensure in preschool, elementary and special education. She taught children with multiple disabilities for 15 years and has been working with parents (families) with behavioral concerns for more than 23 years. She develops individualized strategies to build self esteem and diminish negative, attention-seeking behaviors for each child to be successful in achieving remarkable results. Throughout her work with parents Diana has developed a program that includes hands-on materials encompassing limit-setting, developing structure with schedules, teaching time management, increasing listening skills and parenting with incentives, rather than threats. These successful strategies have changed the dynamics of many families who were struggling with their child¹s behaviors.

Children hit for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons include being tired or hungry. Watch for that, and keep your child well rested and well fed. Sometimes children hit out of frustration because they can’t communicate what they want.  Some children hit because hitting is what they are exposed to when others around them hit. When your child seems to hit for no reason, take note of the situation, the time of day, and the surroundings. Try to find a pattern which triggers your child’s hitting, and eliminate that trigger. In the meanwhile, how do you stop or correct a child from hitting?  Yelling at a child will never change the behavior. It definitely does not help to hit your child as you say,”Don’t hit!” Spanking falls into the same category as hitting your child, so don’t spank your child after he has hit someone. Children are concrete thinkers, so think logically, and hold your child’s hand firmly as you say “You may not hit.” Read more in the complete article How does Mom stop her baby from hitting?
