Managing challenging behaviours
When your child behaves in challenging ways it can make everyday activities like getting ready for school, going to the shops or getting ready for bed a stressful and upsetting experience for both you and your child. This can be more challenging if your child has a disability.
You may find yourself:
- Feeling angry or frustrated in your interactions with your child
- Shouting a lot or giving in to poor behaviour
- Losing confidence in your ability to teach and parent your child
- Feeling judged by others
Getting support from an experienced and qualified person who understands these behaviours in a supportive environment is a good way to for both you and your child to learn new strategies and skills.
Everyday Independence therapists are qualified and experienced in supporting children and their families to better manage and overcome challenging behaviours like tantrums, hitting out, being defiant or not getting along with others.
