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 develop a variety of different skills at different times. Girls usually develop language sooner than boys, who often develop large motor skills sooner than girls. And so it goes, when trying to figure out what’s normal and what’s not. If you are concerned with social or developmental delays, your first stop is to ask your pediatrician about milestone marks. However, some pediatricians may express concern while others may prompt you to “wait and see.” I say follow your heart. In many instances parents know when their child is struggling, and no child should ever be left to face such distress. A few more phone calls to a developmental specialist or children’s hospital will provide the answers to your questions. Many parents won’t ask because they are afraid of the answer. The answer is the same, whether you ask the questions or not, so advocate for your child and get the information you need to set him up for success. Read “Concern for grandson’s social behavior”.
