If you have tried time outs, behavior charts, rewards and consequences, and have taken any and all advice that has come your way, yet you are still struggling to effectively manage your child's behavior; you are not alone! Emotional and behavioral problems were reported amongst the most prevalent chronic mental health conditions of childhood according to National Health Statistics in 2012, and needs for support are growing rapidly. In 2015, the American Academy of Pediatrics reported that 37% to 39% of children will have a behavioral or emotional disorder diagnosed by 16 years of age.
