We help parents positively manage their child’s behavior

At Tuesday’s Child, we have invested more than 35 years in equipping parents of challenging children ages six and younger with the skills they need to positively manage their child’s behavior. Although we provide a variety of services, our most life-changing offering is our evidence-based Behavioral Intervention program for challenging children and their parents.

During this 8 to 12 week program, we address a child’s behavior issues from two angles. Our behavior experts and peer mentors equip parents with strategies that can help them regain parental control and build a positive, trusting bond with their child. At the same time, in a nearby classroom, child behavior experts introduce the child to the same techniques in a supportive, play-based environment. After completing the program, parents have the skills to manage their child’s challenging behavior and to coach their son or daughter toward success.

Friday Friends 

Tuesday’s Child is now offering a half-day “child-only” classroom option.  Friday Friends is an 8-week program designed to supplement a child’s preschool through our highly successful positive behavioral intervention curriculum.  We focus our intervention on social interaction, group participation, regulation skills and following teacher direction.  This classroom will be available to children ages 2 years -6 years. Parents will have access to a Parent Teacher Conference in weeks 6 or 7 to learn about their child’s progress toward goals during their enrollment. Sign up at anytime with the option to re-enroll! An intake is not necessary, simply contact us to enroll: (773) 573-6936 

Although Friday Friends is a supplemental program for your child, Tuesday’s Child recommends families to enroll in Behavioral Intervention to fully benefit from our programs.
