Are you often called or asked by your child’s teacher to come to school and talk about behavior issues? Is your child’s behavior often the cause of classroom disruption? Does your child play too rough at school that he/she does not receive invitations to playdates and birthday parties? Instead of hoping for your child to be well-liked at school, it will serve you and your child best if you seek outside help from a professional.
Trust Your Parental Instincts
As a parent, you’re the first person to recognize that these are signs that your child has emotional or behavioral problems. While it is normal for young children to display occasional “roughness” like pushing, hitting and refusing to take turns, some children do so more frequently even without provocation.
The causes may not be clear to you, especially if your child is unable to verbalize his/her emotions. You need to trust your instincts to help your child who could be experiencing school stress like bullying or test anxiety. It’s also likely that your child is struggling with certain family issues such as divorce, loss of a loved one, extreme sibling rivalry, or other issues you might not even be aware of.
Accepting the Truth
It’s extremely difficult for parents like you to see your child acting out anti-social behaviors at school. Yet, you just can’t ignore his/her repeated pattern of verbal abuse, hitting, and destroying others’ property. When left unchecked, this undesirable conduct will persist and intensify into chronic behavioral disorder through lifetime, which can include high-risk activities that may involve self-harm.
Facing the reality that a child has behavioral problem and needs professional attention can be painful for any parent. Accepting the truth, however, is the first step in helping your child. It can guide you in making a decision that will be most beneficial to your child.
Deciding the best for Your Child
Like most parents, you’ll probably exert all means to help your child. You may try talking to friends, relatives, or your child’s school hoping that you share the same problem and learn from others’ suggestions. You may also seek information from special classes in your desire to support your child who is undergoing a difficult time. If the child remains unresponsive to all your efforts, seeking the intervention of a credible professional is in order.
