Welcome to today’s episode, we’re coming to you from Vienna, Austria this time. We just finished leading a WWII trip where we learned about the start of the war with the invasion of Warsaw, visited Auschwitz & Birkenau concentration camps, and explored Krakow and Vienna.

We love to receive questions from listeners, coaching clients, and members of the Extraordinary Family Life Formula.

One question we’ve received more than once in the last month is about misbehavior in young children.

What do I do when my four-year-old acts out? They will purposely interrupt what their siblings are doing and disturb the peace. They’ll lash out, and it’s becoming violent lately. They’re even getting destructive and destroying things and are into everything. 

They keep interrupting the home education and family routines, and they’re extremely jealous of the new baby. They won’t listen to either parent and they’re becoming a disturbing force in the family. What do we do about it?

If you’ve ever had a child misbehave, especially if it happens consistently, then you want to listen to this episode.

We discuss WHY misbehavior occurs — in children AND adults. Understanding the crucial framework of the cause of behavior vs. symptoms of behavior (aka the acting out) is crucial in creating a happy family life. It also can help you to understand why your teens or spouse do the things they do.

We also address specific strategies for responding to, stopping, and preventing misbehavior. We explain why what you’ve tried so far isn’t working, and what will work instead.

If you’ve ever felt frustrated by the misbehavior of one or more of your children and want to put an end to it, then listen to this episode now! It will transform your family life.
