Behavioral: Behavioral modification therapy is recommended. Many infants exhibit this behavior, and it may be modified. Reinforce positive behaviors and take time outs.

Parenting Stress: I understand your distress. At age 18, going through stresses of relationship, separation, and lack of emotional support, it is overwhelming for you. Do: • Have Heart to Heart talk with father of the baby • Parenting Classes • Seek support from caring family members and friends • See a Therapist for stresses of Parenting individually; and with father of the baby.
