respond to two discussion posts on behavioral problems in children
1) The first common child behavior problem I have chosen is fighting. I selected fighting because it could be a result of one of the other common behavior problems such as anger or frustration. I believe that parents should address this issue by first figuring out what is the root cause. Some example could be tension within the household or a child seeking attention from an uninvolved parent. Once the root cause has been discovered such as seeking attention from an uninvolved parent, the parents should find a way to collectively if possible spend more time as a family. Another option is for the uninvolved parent to become more involved in the childâ€™s life in general.
The second common child behavioral problem if have chosen is nervousness. This could stem from many things such as anxiety disorder or depression. As stated earlier, finding out the cause of the issue is the first step. Also, in this case seeking the opinion of the proper medical physician can provide answers and help to the issue. Furthermore, as a parent reassurance and positive reinforcement can help the child overcome some of the anxiety.
2) Two common types of child behavior problems during middle age are impulsiveness and uncommunicative. When dealing with an impulsive child there are a variety of techniques that you can use to help address their issues. As a parent, I think the first step is to empathize and show a level of understanding when it comes to any issue that your child may be dealing with. Some techniques that can be used to help a child with impulsive behavior are to teach patience so they may know to think for they act. Giving children were impulsive outlets to be active such as sports that will allow them to constructively use their energy while also developing social skills and learning to follow rules. When dealing with a child that is uncommunicative it is important to first determine if there is a root cause. In most cases, a childâ€™s silence is an instinctive self-protective behavior. Children often are quiet when they are experiencing negative emotions. There are a variety of ways to help your children develop more open communication with you and others. Parents can start by expressing interest in your childâ€™s interests even if those entries are not your own. If there is an issue it is important to acknowledge their emotions and if necessary seek therapy to help them cope with their emotions. Sharing experiences can give children a sense of comfort and allow them to open up and involving them in activities that require problem-solving and communication can help to aid them in communicating more openly.
