The paper discusses the hypothesis that a parent or caregiver must master three important child-guiding skills to help improve young (3 to 6 years old) children's behaviors: Empathy, setting boundaries, and early intervention. The best time to be empathetic with children, to begin the use of boundaries, and to utilize early intervention techniques is when they are still very young. A sense of empathy and setting boundaries should go hand in hand with the process of early intervention. Thus, parents or caregivers should be aware of the importance of early intervention. It has been agreed upon amongst therapists that early intervention is a crucial remedial factor in correcting existing developmental problems.
