By age four, your child's language will be very functional. You will be able to teach your child how to do things, like chores, and how you expect your child to behave.
The skills presented in these classes are very effective with this age of child. Create a positive home environment and catch your child being good often. Focus your attention on the things you like, and minimize attention for the things you do not.
This is a great age to teach, motivate, and build positive behavior. It is the best age to eliminate behavior problems, large or small. And it is the age to teach your child to cooperate and obey. At this age you control virtually everything that your child really wants. In fact, your attention is usually the biggest reward your child can earn.
Some common problems with this age are noncompliance, tantrums, hitting, not sharing, demanding attention, lying, fighting, disrespect, arguing, bedtime problems, and eating/mealtime problems. If you are struggling with behavior problems at this age, it is much quicker and easier to address them now instead of later.
