Living with a child who is prone to explosive outbursts and sudden rage can be nerve-wracking for parents and other relatives. You can use careful study of antecedents to try to help figure out what kinds of things may happen right before a meltdown. You should start by carefully creating a detailed profile of a problem child’s behavior patterns and personality. It can be useful to carefully record your child’s behavior, to include time of day and things that just happened, in order to reduce likely causal relationships.
- By understanding the reasons behind behavior, we can ultimately step towards positive change
- While all children are different, there are specific characteristics all children have that drive their reactions
- Having a positive self-talk view of your child plays a large part in success
