Understanding Your Child’s Behavior
When children act out, whether they’re 3 or 13, it can be challenging to know what to do. Once you understand more about why they act the way they do, you can react more calmly. And noticing and praising “good” or positive behavior can really help encourage them to change their behavior.
The mission of On Our Sleeves is to provide every community access to free, evidenced-informed educational resources necessary for breaking stigmas about child mental health, and educating families and advocates. We also support access to services by connecting families to trusted local resources.
It’s time to have an important local and national conversation about children’s mental health. It’s time to raise our voices for this important cause.
