What Is Typical Behavior for an Elementary School-Aged Child?

With Natale Badillo, MA, Ed, of Kenneth A. De Luca, Ph.D. & Associates, Inc.

Presented: 2015

Description of Presentation

 How long should the average meltdown last? Is my child's constant anxiety about school normal? If my child doesn't get invitations to birthday parties or play dates, are her social skills lacking? My son is having trouble at recess, how do I know if it is just an average playground conflict or if he is being bullied?

Badillo addresses anxiety, meltdowns, impulsiveness, peer relationships and homework avoidance in this discussion.
