Hi there!

I’m Becky, a former elementary school teacher turned certified child development therapist and blogger. I work at home with my husband and together we are raising (and partially homeschooling) our four children in the Carolinas. I love diet coke, ice cream, and spending time with my family.

  1. Would love a live Q&A session! Otherwise posts, etc. can sometimes seem staged (not saying they’re not helpful – they definitely have their time and place. They’re just not as tailored to your audience, IMHO. 🙂

  2. We need assistance with patience on our end and listening from our boys.

  3. I am having a hard time with my 10 soon to be 11 year old. He is extremely jealous of his 3 year old brother.
    It hasn’t gotten better, honestly worse. We give him just as much attention and we do our youngest child but here lately I can honestly say it is avout to drive me nuts .

  4. I can tell when I am short with my kids, it is a direct correlation to how I have been taking care of myself (lack of sleep, exercise, illness, etc.)

  5. Hi,
    I have a 4 year old whobis on the autism spectrum with his behaviour and social skills.
    And i also have a 5 year old who started prep and is giving a lot of attitude and defiant behaviour.
    We have been putting up with this for so long our patience has gone 😣

  6. My daily struggle with my two children is trying to stay calm and just being able to talk to them and with them. I have a seven year old son named Jayden and a three year old daughter named Zalayla.

  7. Hi Becky

    Thank you for your blogs they are very informative. I am a single full time working mom who works long hours and I battle with helping my 4 year old little girl to Chanel her anger. She gets very angry for such a little person which concerns me.

  8. I’m a 1st time grandma. My just 3 year old grandson has always been strong-willed though charming. He has suddenly turned his attention & energy to demanding my daughter’s constant attention & hitting out. He’s had most of my attention for 2 days a week for most of his life. Today he hit & bit his mum when she needed to forcibly take him inside the house.
    My daughter works full time & is expecting their 2nd child in 5 months, so we need to work on her son’s expectations of attention & managing his behaviour.

  9. We are struggling with our 7 year old daughter. Trying to determine what is normal naughty 7 yr old behaviour and what could possibly be symptoms of ADHD. Never sure what is within her ability to control and what’s not.
