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 childs behaviors.

Children hit for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons include beingtired or hungry. Watch for that, and keep your child well rested and well fed. Sometimeschildren hit out of frustration because they can’t communicate what they want. Some children hit becausehitting is what they are exposed to when others around them hit. When your childseems tohit 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 correcta child from hitting? Yelling at a childwill neverchange 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, andhold your child’s hand firmly as you say “You may not hit.” Read more in the complete articleHow does Mom stop her baby from hitting?
