Thursday, February 6 · 6:30pm · Bozeman Public Library

A free program for parents, grandparents & caregivers sponsored by Friends of the Library

Why do some children "lose it" over seemingly insignificant issues? Have you ever been surprised by the perfectly mellow child who suddenly seems unable to get along with anyone else? What do you do when every day activities turn into battles no one wins? How do you respond when a child refuses to listen, and declares, "You can't make me!"

Challenging behaviors are like a great mystery. The real story is never what it looks like at first glance. And like a great mystery those challenges cannot be unraveled until we discover the "real culprits."
