Our son, Charlie, is a typical 2-year-old. We’d never had major problems with him and very rarely had to deal with tantrums. Things started to change for us when he started attending nursery. All of a sudden, we started seeing a change in his behaviour as he progressively got more and more aggressive towards other children. We tried to deal with his behaviour on our own but didn’t really know what approach to take. This was when we decided to ask Mylee for help. She was brilliant. She explained why Charlie was behaving this way and why he was reacting like this in certain situations. During the consultation she talked us through certain techniques and we discussed strategies to put into practice. After the consultation she put together the plan where she summarised the whole conversation we had during the consult and again described the strategies to cope with Charlie’s behaviour and how his primary care-takers should react. It was very useful as we could share the plan with the nursery teachers.
What’s more, the strategies suggested by Mylee really worked. Not long after implementing the plan, we started seeing improvements in Charlie’s behaviour. We couldn’t be happier. Charlie started to show more empathy towards others and found it easier to play with other children even in new environments. We also learnt how to manage certain situations and avoid unwanted triggers.
Thank you Mylee; we couldn't be more grateful for all your advice.
We have 3 year-old twins and have been working with Meredith for about a year and a half every several months as we have needed advice and assistance. Every time we come to her with what feels like a huge problem with our kids she is able to give such incredible advice and helps us fix the issue within days! I am so thankful for her help and cannot say enough about how wonderful she is!
We have been working with Mylee since Thomas was 6 months when we started sleep training and kept in contact with her as he continued to grow, change sleep habits and develop. To this day Thomas has learned his independence in sleeping on his own and we never knew what it was like to wake up in the middle of the nights and know how fortunate we are because of that. Thanks to Mylee we were all able to get sleep and have a consistent schedule with knowing what to expect down the line.
Later, it was exciting to learn about Mylee’s new pediatric behavioral consultative services and immediately took a proactive approach to work with her on what would be best as he entered 2 years old to be most effective. Again, it was interesting to learn the approach of independence and understanding of why he feels or behaves a certain way. Today we get complements all the time especially when we go out for dinners how well behaved, he is.
As he now approaches preschool we are once again find ourselves working with Mylee on potty training techniques. At first, I thought we would walk out of the consult with a list of things to do and scheduled program to get him to potty train on his own. How refreshing again was it to sit back and take a more proactive approach to learn the ques of readiness and encourage him to be ready on his own. The results in seeing him have an awareness on his own was immediate and my lens on the effectiveness of just telling him what to do, over his own ques is very intriguing. At the end of each consult, Mylee provides a very comprehensive write up on the recommendations and I can share this with his daily care contacts. Her services are above and beyond what I ever imagined. We would highly recommend Mylee to any parents that need effective and professional advice on child behavior.
