CHILD AND TEEN COUNSELING
Very often Kids are the reason their caregivers or parents become stressed. Often parents and caregivers are worried if their children are having emotional disturbances, have learning disabilities, or intellectual dysfunctions, other concerns such as ADHD, bullying, nail biting, bed wetting, etc. These are common areas of concerns where we can help and advise parents and caregivers on how to manage their own emotions and stress and how to alter their behavior and apply strategies to help their kids in their issues as well.
MENTAL HEALTH IN CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS
Do children & adolescents suffer from mental health problems? A resounding YES! Children can suffer from the same mental health problems as adults. So why aren’t children getting the appropriate care for these issues?
1. Many Adults don’t know the signs:
2.Children(And many adults) lack the vocabulary to express their symptoms
3.Difficult to distinguish signs of a problem from normal behaviour
4.Stigma, Stigma and more Stigma: Parents sometimes don’t want to accept reality.
5.Logistics and monetary problems: Lack of good help or financial issues
Important Steps to deal with explosive behaviour in your child:
1. Stay Very Calm:
Don’t Yell back even though you feel like. If you shout, You won’t be able to reach him/her. If you stay in control, your child will watch you and learn from it.
2. Don’t agree to his demands:
Make sure you don’t give in to his demands to make him/her stop yelling
3. Give praise when needed:
If he calms down, praise him for it. Also praise him/her when he tries to express himself calmly.
4. Teach him problem solving skills:
Do this when the child is not upset. Put a problem to him and ask him/her how he thinks you might solve it.
5. Time outs along with rewards:
If the child isn’t violent, then incorporate timeouts. This can work if the child is less than 8 years. If not, use a points system for good behaviours. If he gets enough points, he can get something he wants. Do this for good behaviours
6. Identify and avoid triggers: Usually, kids are set off by predictable triggers. Give time warnings for things which might trigger him off.
7.Identify the reasons for his aggressive behaviour:
Remember the possible causes for aggressive could be one of the following:
Learning disability which isn’t diagnosed
Sensory processing problems: Too much noise, rough clothes can set them off
