On this episode, Angela and Kristin discuss one of the most frustrating of parenting experiences- dealing with kids and teens’ impulsive behaviors. They dive into tips and strategies from those early behaviors, from grabbing and interrupting, to more risky impulsive behaviors such as unsafe driving habits of some teens. From modeling appropriate behavior, reminders of actions and consequences, using positive reinforcement vs. punishment and more, our listeners will come away with some ideas to try out in their homes today.
