Your Perfect Child
Diana Boggia has a masters degree in education with licensure in preschool, elementary and special education. She taught children with multiple disabilities for 15 years and has been working with parents (families) with behavioral concerns for more than 23 years. She develops individualized strategies to build self esteem and diminish negative, attention-seeking behaviors for each child to be successful in achieving remarkable results. Throughout her work with parents Diana has developed a program that includes hands-on materials encompassing limit-setting, developing structure with schedules, teaching time management, increasing listening skills and parenting with incentives, rather than threats. These successful strategies have changed the dynamics of many families who were struggling with their child¹s behaviors.

Preparing a child for the passing of a loved one can be difficult, especially if emotions are high among family members. Children tend to follow the lead of the  beloved adults in their  lives, so thoughtful reassurance with a brief, positive explanation is often well received. Sadly, children can easily misunderstand and or misinterpret information as well as conversations, which can lead them to develop irrational fears of becoming ill or dying. Their perception is rarely accurate as they can only base their emotions on the information they have been exposed to.  Be prepared. Read helpful, comforting suggestions to support emotional security in my article “Finding ways to help children cope with death”.
