      Back Talk: Dealing with a Disrespectful Child (Parents / Caregivers of children ages 4 – 11 years)

      Allowing a child to treat us with disrespect is not only hurtful, but not in the child’s best interest.  Behavior at home spills over into behavior at school, peer relationships, sports and just about all spheres of life. The good news is that it is relatively easy to break the habit with some simple parenting tools.
