Children with difficult behaviour

All children misbehave or engage in inappropriate behavior at some stage, If it happens occasionally, this is ok. But if it happens more than less, hmmm…. Something is not right?

So a big million dollar question is, why is the child not behaving? Some possible answers could be:

  • ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Sensory Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Learning issues
  • Emotional distress following grief or trauma
  • Speech/communication issues

Things you can do to help children

  • Lots of Positive Reinforcement.
  • Find something to praise, or encourage playtime/story time together with yourself and your child. Appreciate your child for every little thing they do.​
  • Build a team. You can make a team to help support the child, and help them improve with their behaviour. Your team can include: child’s teacher, a psychologist, a pediatrician etc.​
  • Not being too harsh on ourselves.
  • Parenting can be emotionally distressing, frustrating, and emotionally draining. It is ok to not do the right thing sometimes, we all go through those phases.

How can a psychologist help?

The psychologist starts by gathering information on your child and what the contributing factors are in the difficult behaviour. Once the reasons have been identified then work as a team with the parents, teachers and children to create happier lives for you, the school and your child.
