I've spent more than four decades as a consultant in early childhood education, and I've never seen more -- ahem -- "interesting" times in the field.
Early childhood professionals everywhere tell me they've never seen more challenging behaviors among the little ones.
It saddens me, but I'm not surprised.
Among the reasons children are acting out are the facts that:
- play is lacking in their lives;
- there is far too much focus on competition;
- they have almost no downtime; and
- they're being pressured to achieve what they're not yet developmentally equipped to achieve.
That's why I created this package of digital downloads for you!
My mission is to ensure that children have the chance to be children...and that child development guide all our practices!
