The stresses and disruption of the last two years have taken their toll on children and teenagers in many ways, and it’s no surprise that it shows in their behavior. With schooling and family routines interrupted and uncertainty so much a part of our lives now, many kids are acting out more and finding it harder to manage big emotions.

In this week’s newsletter we round up resources on what parents can do to help kids handle strong feelings and meet expectations for their behavior. We look at what causes problem behavior, strategies parents can use to reel it in, and how expert backup can help families understand what’s going on and find a solution.
