Michelle Erridge specializes in emotional and social development in children. She works out of Five Counties Children’s Centre in Peterborough, Ontario, and she understands the value of examining the behaviour to better understand a child’s needs.

Our family was fortunate to have access to Michelle’s expertise through our preschool program, and I was so impressed with her knowledge and skill I begged her to let me interview her in hopes of helping parents have healthier relationships with their kids and feel more confident navigating the ever changing landscape of parenting.

She agreed (mostly because she knew I wouldn’t give up!)

This is Part One of a three part series that provides simple tips and insight that will hopefully make the hard parenting days easier and the good ones even better.

The most powerful quote from this video that really resonated with me and that I need to revisit and remind myself of often is:
