Are you wondering....

Whatever happened to our biddable baby in the bunny rug?

How do we teach our toddler to behave - without crushing his delightful spirit?

What is realistic to expect at this amazing age of discovery?

If you would you like to learn some simple but powerful strategies that will help you guide your terrific toddler so he learns to be happy, bright and sociable as well as considerate, caring and polite (most of the time!), you will love this series of interviews with experts.

In these recordings (which you can download onto your computer or MP3 player and listen as it suits you) each expert explains the latest research in their specialised field of early development and how you can apply this information to encourage a happy, healthy, well behaved toddler. You will learn what to expect at different ages and stages, what is 'normal', as well as what could be affecting your child's behaviour if he is having lots of meltdowns, isn't listening and won't cooperate. Our experts will also explain how you can communicate effectively and appropriately, so you can respectfully support your little person to co-operate without resorting to punishment, shaming or shouting.

What will you learn?

I have lined up some brilliant professionals who are recognised experts in their respective fields of child development. All speakers have impeccable qualifications in child development, as well as a particular interest in factors that impact on children's behaviour. They also have real life experience working with children as well as a research or clinical perspective.

Best of all, not only will you be armed with the theory to encourage and support your child's development, you will also discover a plethora of practical strategies that you can implement and enjoy with your toddler -right now!

Each recorded interview features a single expert being interviewed on their main topic of expertise. I ask them (individually) to explain how you can create an optimum environment to support your toddler's development - what is normal, what is appropriate and how you can make changes, without stress for you or your child.

This information is rarely available all at once, in one place. And if it were, you would have to pay hundreds of dollars to hear speakers with this breadth of expertise.

Fed up with your toddler's behaviour - literally? - effects of food chemicals on behaviour

Our food has changed dramatically since the widespread introduction of highly processed foods about 30 years ago.

It is now officially acknowledged that additives such as artificial colours can affect children's behaviour. However, few parents know:

  • which additives to avoid
  • which foods contain these additives
  • how to recognise food-related behaviours

As well, most parents are surprised to find that natural food chemicals called salicylates and amines in 'healthy' foods such as fruit and vegetables may also cause behaviour problems in some children.

The main behavioural effects of food chemicals are irritability and restlessness, but there are also health issues that are sometimes treated as behavioural problems, e.g. difficulty settling to sleep, bedwetting, sneaky poos and head-banging.

Effects of food chemicals (e.g. additives, salicylates, amines)

  • irritability, moodiness, short fuse (children are touchy and easily annoyed)
  • restlessness, overactivity
  • difficulty settling to sleep, frequent night waking, night terrors
  • long, frequent or destructive tantrums
  • headbanging
  • speech delay, inattention
  • anxiety (children are clingy, grizzly and miserable)
  • stomach aches, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhoea, sneaky poos, sticky poos (feeling of incomplete evacuation), bedwetting
  • also a wide range of physical symptoms including : itchy rashes, asthma, stuffy or runny nose, frequent colds, flu, ear infections, tonsillitis, urinary tract infections

Some comments from parents:

  • Our 15 month old son's sleeping problems have been solved … by week three of the diet he slept through the night for the first time. - Pippa, Qld
  • My 3 yo son has gone from terrible to angel. Since he was able to start eating he would scream and hit and become very aggressive and defiant. I am so surprised at how much difference this diet has made. - Charmaine, WA

Dr. Louise Porter
Guiding Children's Behaviour

In this seminar, Louise Porter will describe how children who want to please us do not need to be punished when they make mistakes, because they are remorseful already. In contrast, nonconformist children (who value being in command of themselves) are prepared to risk our displeasure to prove to us that we can't make them do things. The more we try to reward and punish these spirited children in order to control them, the worse their behaviour gets. In other words, we need to avoid rewards and punishments (consequences) because they are unnecessary for one group of children and counter-productive for the other group. Alternatives include giving positive feedback without praising; and supporting children to regain command of their own emotions, rather than punishing them for becoming out of control.

About Dr Louise Porter - PhD, MA(Hons), MGiftedEd, DipEd, BA, Child Psychologist - www.louiseporter.com.au

Dr Louise Porter is a child psychologist with over 25 years' experience in private practice consulting with parents and practitioners about children's developmental and social or emotional challenges. She worked for 10 years in disability and mainstream settings and lectured at university in Adelaide for 13 years in topics relating to early childhood, special and gifted education, and behaviour management. She has a particular interest in how adults can guide children's behaviour, which was the subject of her doctorate. She has published widely, with her book on children's behaviour being: Children are people too: A parent's guide to young children's behaviour, a parenting course, A guidance approach to discipline, and a DVD Guiding children's behaviour.
