In a current Exchange Magazine article, Heather Bernt-Santy writes, "Trying to solve perceived behavior problems by delivering negative reports at the end of the day is not only ineffective, it can be harmful."
This is only one of many topics Heather will address, along with Mike Huber and Exchange Press’s Sara Gilliam and Kirsten Haugen, during a live online conversation, "Challenging Behaviors as Opportunities for Building Relationship: Being on the Same Team with Children and Families."
Today is the last chance to register to join this lively and intimate conversation, which will take place Tuesday, May 3, 2022, 7 - 8:30 Eastern.
Then one more wonderful opportunity is available Wednesday, May 4, 2022, when Sandra Duncan, Sue Penix and Sally Haughey present an Early Childhood Investigations webinar, "The Honeycomb Hypothesis: A Fresh Perspective on How Infants, Toddlers, and Two’s Learn."

Challenging Behaviors as Opportunities for Building:
Being on the Same Team with Children and Families Relationships
Join this live, intimate, and interactive conversation with Heather Bernt-Santy and Mike Huber, hosted by Exchange magazine Editor-in-Chief Sara Gilliam and Kirsten Haugen of Exchange Press.
In this live conversation, we will explore those times when children’s behaviors truly challenge us. We’ll make a shift from compliance and defiance to understanding these challenges as an indication a child is currently lacking skills. We’ll uncover the possibilities that arise when we make this shift. We’ll explore through real-life stories, how focusing on co-regulation and relationships helps us team up with each child with a shared goal of developing new skills. And we’ll step through the nuances of sharing these emerging skills with families in ways that welcome them onto the team. You’ll leave this lively conversation with enhanced compassion and approaches for teaming up with the children whose behaviors challenge you most.
