    Young children's behavior can be challenging at times, but handling it does not have to be.

    This Redleaf Quick Guide is filled with information on how to respond to an array of behavioral challenges including aggression, defiance, inappropriate language, tantrums, and separation anxiety. This book also offers prevention tips and developmental information that may affect children's behavior. Age Focus: 1-5. Softbound, 40 pgs.
