    What age do you suggest starting this with? Although my 2 year old seems somewhat advanced, I don’t think he will see us as a team or be able to choose consequences. What do you suggest for the younger ages? Thank you!!

      Great question. I have an elementary aged son and a toddler. With younger ages you get to choose the behaviors and the consequences. As they age, you can start working on it as a team. The important thing to remember is to tackle only a couple behaviors at a time so that the child doesn’t feel like they can’t do anything right. With my toddler, we started with aggressive behaviors and when those were under control, we added in yelling. It took about six months of consistently responding to the aggression before we felt we could move onto the yelling. Now we’ve been working on yelling for a couple of months and not only is she not hitting, but she’s rarely yelling at us as well!
