Disruptive Behaviors In Kids In School: What TO Do & NOT Do

Oppositional BehaviorDisruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.

Oppositional defiant disorder.

ADHD.  Sensory integration disorder.

Rebellious. Defiant.

I’m sure you have heard all of these words used by a teacher or school struggling with a child’s behavior.

In this video, I discuss some common problems and challenges for parents and teachers including ways you should (and should NOT) talk to your child’s school.

Managing behavioral problems

Disruptive behaviors are difficult. Managing a child with behavior problems is difficult. But things become more difficult as the child matures and begins to show behaviors in the school system. Once behaviors start coming out in the school, things can go from mediocre to worse.

Managing a child’s behavior problems in school requires team-work, a lot of patience, compassion for the child, and a focused, fair view of the child’s needs. Having too many opinions, having too many people involved, and feeling confused or drained by it all will only backfire.

I discuss more of this concept in the following video.

As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please check (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at:

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
