Today on Raising Adults, we discuss the age where littles are hitting, biting, and breaking things. We share some tips on how we've tackled this phase with our littles that align with our FFP philosophy. Join us today as we share tools that parents can use for dealing with this developmentally appropriate, though challenging, phase. "Make sure that as you're encouraging this behavior to stop and letting them know that this is not appropriate, that we are also giving them the tools for what is appropriate." - Kira Dorrian "What we permit, we promote. So if you're allowing it, even sometimes, they're thinking, ‘Oh, I might, get away with this here and there,’ and that's really not okay." - Deana Thayer Things we chat about:
