Impulse Control- Parent Guides

This is a follow-up post on my most popular post of all time has been on impulse control: Impulse Control: Home Activities and Games

I have been working on making the content I write and create be more visual and easy to use for parents and professionals.  One of main ideas has been to take content and create appealing visuals that give an overview of the information in an easy to use way.  Today I want to share my first few attempts at creating “infographics” on impulse control.

I split the info from my previous post into 3 main handouts for parents, one for infants, one for toddlers, and one for preschoolers.  The information coordinates between handouts, but rarely duplicates, so it is worth sharing all 3 with parents or professionals working with young children.
