5 Ways to help children who struggle with Self Control.


Children who struggle with self control and resort to challenging behaviours often have trouble coping with everyday tasks or situations. These are 5 ways to help them develop coping strategies to help control their emotions and reactions.

  1. Give Words to feelings: Name it to tame it.
  2. Find the triggers: Track and observe
  3. Anticipate transitions: Be one step ahead
  4. Use what they love doing as a coping strategy: Not bribes or rewards
  5. Be present and understanding: Use active listening and ask relevant questions.                                                                                                                                                                                                           If you would like advice on how to implement these strategies how about booking a one to one discovery session?  I can help you discover how to manage challenging behaviours in a more positive way which will strengthen the relationship between you and your child.
