Getting out in the Spring!

With the weather warming up (hopefully), many of you will be making trips to the park or other outdoor settings. As with all outings, it is important to discuss your expectations with your child before you go. Let them know how you expect them to address others, what you expect of their behavior, any specific rules about the location (i.e. what areas are ok/not ok), as well as how things will go when it is time to leave.  Setting these expectations ahead of time should reduce the amount of correction, thus making the outing more enjoyable for you and your child!
