I had the pleasure of presenting at The Texas Girls Conference put on by GENAustin two weekends ago on finding your personal crown. While working with the girls and talking with their parents, the most common question I was asked was why this behavior? So many times, we as parents get fixated on that one behavior that seems out of place or that is affecting our children’s lives academically. What we have to remember is this behavior may seem out of the ordinary for you, but it is their normal. Your child may simply be at an impasse of finding the words to mirror their emotions. The next time you find yourself looking at that behavior, try asking questions that help your child communicate with words and not actions in getting what they want.
