Between 18 months and 3 years, your child is pushing for new independence. But they don't always know how to say what they want—which can lead to frustration, for both of you.

In this episode, Carol and Anne share the communication tendencies of all 4 Types of children. Their examples will help you make simple changes, so that you and your little one can communicate more easily.

Use your words. Notice times that you can communicate more clearly and invite your children to use words. Use the tips from this episode to give them the words they need.
