Today we’re digging into the real reasons our kids interrupt (and no, it’s not just to annoy you! 😜), including some practical tips on how to deal in the moment and how having a “secret signal” could be the key to squashing this annoying behaviour in your family for good!

Would love to hear your thoughts.
