Young children express their emotions through behaviors instead of words. Concerned caregivers are often left wondering and worrying about changes they notice in their child, such as:
- difficulties with sleep, eating, and transitions
- staying silent when talking is expected
- defiance and refusing reasonable requests
Fortunately, young children are able to benefit from many therapeutic interventions. Children can use play to understand, share, and develop mastery over difficult life experiences, with the support of a knowledgeable, caring therapist. Caregivers can learn effective ways to reinforce positive behaviors and reduce negative ones. Most importantly, when parents or caregivers better connect with, understand, support, and relate to even the youngest children they are raising, families can thrive regardless of the stressors they face – now or in the future. As a loving caregiver, you are the most important support for your child, and collaborating with you is an important focus of therapy for your little one.
