Are you struggling with a young child with behavior problems, temper tantrums, and who frequently lashes out?
Dealing with a difficult child can be so exasperating. Trust us, we know. At our six child care centers in Southwest Florida, we’ve been invested in early childhood development since 1967. At any given time, our teachers are responsible for caring for hundreds of children, ranging in ages from a few weeks old to 8 years old, many from low income areas.
So when you are:
- Exhausted by your child’s hyperactivity
- Embarrassed by your child’s outbursts in public
- Unable to control your child’s bad behavior and feeling defeated
We know exactly what you’re going through and we can help. We’ve been there before and we even wrote a book called 10 Ways to Make a Major Difference in Your Child’s Life to empower you to plant seeds of encouragement, sensitivity, and confidence in your child.
You see, we understand that learning ways to correct your child’s bad behavior are most likely what you’re looking for. But through our years of interacting with children, we’ve come to the conclusion that taking disciplinary actions toward your child or putting your child on the latest “chill pill”, aren’t always the best methods for reaching your goal of having a happy, well-behaved child.
Instead, we’ve learned that the best way to reach “the promised land” is by becoming a Cool Parent and really getting invested in your child’s life.

We also learned that the best way to change your child’s behavior is to take a genuine interest in them, love them unconditionally, and get them involved in one-on-one activities that they enjoy.
So we put together this list of 10 ways to improve your child’s life:
