Is this Typical?

Understanding Social-Emotional Development in Young Children

Virtual Event: April 11, 12pm ET


Join Us!

Development in the early childhood years happens at lightning speed. Your child is growing, learning new skills, and becoming their own person, all while figuring out how their world works. With these developmental changes seemingly happening overnight, it can be tricky for parents to figure out what’s typical and what’s not. Should my kid be having this many tantrums at this age? Should stranger anxiety have subsided by now? All kids don’t listen, right? This webinar will give you the tools to think through social-emotional challenges in young children, and ideas for what to do next.

Topics we’ll cover:

  • Social-emotional development in young children

  • Strategies for challenges that arise

  • Tips for seeking out additional support and interventions



Send us your personal questions, and we will answer them during the live discussion! If you can’t attend live, register anyway and we’ll send you the recording.
