Oppositional defiant disorder.
ADHD. Sensory integration disorder.
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.
