    Parents spend considerable time and energy searching for experienced and talented babysitters, nannies, or au pairs for their children. Especially when children exhibit challenging behaviors, parents want to know that their child's caregiver is well prepared to address these situations with strategies that promote positive behavior, social-emotional development, and self-esteem. The Child Mind Institute's B.E.S.T. Program (Behavioral and Emotional Skills Training for caregivers) provides just this sort of preparation. Informed by the most up-to-date research, clinicians provide caregivers with a structured training experience aimed at the teaching and immediate application of practical techniques for effective behavior management.
