"Our approach to helping children depends on our values. It also depends on our understanding of how kids develop and how they have become who they are today. When we understand why kids behave aggressively and defiantly, we are in a position to help them..Consider that every negative behavior has a positive side..show faith in your child..Allow them to see that you believe they can succeed."
