Kellie is a board certified behavior analyst. She is the founder of her own business, Applied Behavioral Happiness. At Applied Behavioral Happiness, Kellie and her team work with families to overcome challenging behavior through skill building programs and play.
What I love about Kellie is that she approaches this with what will work with your kids, your family, your belief systems, your values. It’s not a one size fits all plan for how to handle behavior issues with your child.
Some things that we talked about in this episode were how to change behavior without forcing change in your child, when tried and true advice doesn’t work, our triggers, your child’s triggers. I walked away with some tangible skills that I am going to walk away for my own family!
I shared some real life experiences that I’ve had with my own kids that I had Kellie analyze that I thought would be helpful for people listening.
