Kurcinka’s workshop, entitled “Challenging Child Behaviors” covers questions that have likely crossed every parent’s mind: ● How do you respond when your child shouts, “You can’t make me!” or refuses to take “no” for an answer? ● What do you do when everyday activities turn into battles no one wins? ● How do you intervene when your child is fighting with siblings and peers?
