When dealing with challenging or violent behavior problems, parents need to use techniques that will effectively stop it. As people, we use behavior as a form of communication Children are no different than adults, we all want to be understood, to be treated with respect, and to satisfy our needs. When we look at the underlying causes of bad behavior problems in children and enable individuals with the choice of replacing bad behaviors with good behaviors that meet the same needs or when equipped with effective behavior management strategies, we are better able to guide children toward changing their own behavior so they can express themselves in a positive way. We cannot force troubled teens to do anything but, we can guide them toward changing their behaviors for the good.
Therapy can address specific behavior problems in children, such as: impulse control, peer pressure, self esteem, grief/loss issues, family relationships, substance abuse, depression, anger management, oppositional defiance, communication and academic struggles by establishing routines and increasing positive attention among other therapeutic interventions. When a problem like ADD or ADHD is present, the most basic strategies can be a big challenge to implement on a day to day basis but can also be addressed with therapy.
Parents, if you are looking for a program that merges a unique combination of therapy,
education, discipline, environment and love, there are options available. Contact us today, at 800-675-8101 to learn more about how Liahona Academy can help you stop bad behavior problems in children, for good.
