You Can Make a Difference
Building and maintaining a positive relationship with your toddler or preschooler is another vital element in healthy child development. Based on decades of research and practical parenting experience, this engaging video series was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help parents manage what can sometimes become very challenging behavior by their young children such as disobedience and whining.
We understand that every family is unique so we offer these techniques as suggestions that you can tailor to your own children's needs. And as always, in Vermont you can speak to an HMG VT Child Developmental Specialist if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's developmental journey by dialing 2-1-1 x6.
