Ep 102: Is This Just a Phase??

I’m talking about the question we all ask ourselves and each other. “Is my child’s behaviour a phase, or is it a more permanent issue which they might need help with, and how do I know the difference??”
We know our children will naturally go through ages and stages as they go from baby to adult – I’m talking about whether there’s a way of knowing for sure.

Here are the highlights:

(2:00) Is it an age or stage or do you need support?

(6:50) What else is going on in their life?

(12:09) Consistent scaffolding

(16:25) Has there been any regression in other areas?

(19:15) Are there accompanying changes in sleep, appetite or behaviour?

(22:09) Is the change in behaviour affecting their daily life?
