It is your job to shelter your children from the ills of the world and then to finally set the record straight by educating them on what they are seeing and how that impacts the expectations that have been set for them.
This may sound strange, but it is true: the best time to inter- vene in your child’s misbehavior is when the misbehavior is not happening.
Each childhood behavior and disorder is categorized by the following three reference points:• Introduction to the behavior or mental disorder
• Formal diagnosis as defined by the American Psychiatric Association
• Interventions that put you on the path to improving behaviors
