Topics include but are not limited to: effective communication, the link between behaviour and temperament,  the link between brain development and behavior, understanding child development, having appropriate behavioral expectations, the importance of connection, and responding to children’s misbehaviour in ways that promote growth and self regulation. Responding to strong emotions, coping with separation anxiety, teaching and modelling social skills,  are a few examples of topics that can be included.
