Shifting kids’ habitual behaviours

Do your children have any habitual responses that are disruptive to your family? In this month’s ‘Maggie Moment’, Australian parenting author, educator and host of the Parental As Anything podcast talks all about our children’s habits and neuroplasticity (meaning the way our brains are changeable). Maggie talks about how children can develop habitual responses that become challenging behaviour (ie kicking, screaming, tantruming). Maggie shares how parents can use the concept of neuroplasticity to teach their children a new habit, rather than simply telling them to stop doing whatever it is they are doing.
