Behavior Issues Quick Guide

Overview:
Individual/Family may be showing signs of behavior issues such as acting out, excessive anger, and/or bullying. These behavior issues can be stemming from less obvious issues that may need to be addressed. In addition behavior issues can range greatly from mild to severe which will determine what type of intervention services will be required to address the behavior issue.

GOAL:
The goal of the Behavior Issues Quick Guide is to assist caregivers/children with learning and community resources that will help them handle behavior issues within their family.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:

  • Children can often times struggle to control strong emotions like anger, especially when changes are occurring within their life. Parents play an important role in helping children control their anger and to intervene when anger issues get out of control. For more information see the Childhood Anger folder.
  • As children grow and develop behavior issues can often arise. These include things like biting and hitting. For the most part these behavior issues are just fazes that with some guidance they will grow out of. Occasionally though these can be indicators of more serious issues. For more information see the Common Behavior Issues folder.
  • Parents often struggle with managing behavior issues in their children. For resources to help see the Behavior Management folder.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
Bullying has become a huge issue in schools today, and parents play an important role in preventing and intervening when their children are bullying others or are being bullied. For more information, see the Bullying folder.
