Whether it's sneaking a snack before dinner, refusing to finish up a video game or whining all the way to the mall, misbehaving is an inevitable part of childhood.
It's no secret that effective parenting involves knowing how to respond when kids act up, and knowing how to steer clear of meltdown situations.
It also means setting limits so kids know when they are crossing the line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
