Discussing Behaviour with Families


The idea of conversing with parents about children’s behavior can be scary because parents often feel judged and defensive. How do we have conversations with families about behavior that build and strengthen the care partnership? Are all these challenging conversations necessary? What is our responsibility? In this session, we’ll explore these questions together.
