The Curious Child

For the Curious Child: Do you have a child who often challenges the status quo by ‘acting outside the box’? This child may need an environment with the freedom to create.

Is your child:

  • Acting in a way that can be defined as ‘act now, think later’? Does your child do something then engage brain later?
  • Lacking the ability to sit still and focus; making noises or engaging in other annoying activity without realizing that they are being a distraction?
  • Engaging, yet frustrating and in general, a good child that is acting in a way that you often say, ‘I am not sure what to do with this kid’?
  • Giving you cause for concern from time to time because your child is a constant ball of energy?

We know that this child, channeled and focused in the right direction can use that enormous energy for good. If you said yes to one or more of these questions,

When you have a creative, active child, it is often that they can fall between the cracks in a classroom of 30+ children. They are sometimes seen as a trouble maker but you know that they really are not. They are often misunderstood. We can help you walk through the necessary steps to focus your child before what seem like simple irritants become more challenging behaviors.
