Michelle Gambs, parenting coach, says there are five needs that each of us have, and today she explained how to meet those needs for your kids and how that can help lead to better behavior.
2. Love-give and receive
4. To feel special/valued/important
5. Experiment and explore
Children WILL get their needs met, appropriately or inappropriately, whatever works and whatever we train them to do.
It helps for us to look at them through that lens of five needs to understand why they might be doing what they are doing and that it is not personal to us.
