Empathy, a cooperative attitude, and calm nature are essential traits for parents to adopt as their child struggles. Also, understanding when to ask for help is key.
If your child’s behavior becomes disruptive to the general running of your household or their education, or if they become violent, it’s time to talk to a professional.
Growing children with behavioral problems aren’t easy. But before you rush to diagnose them or turn into a strict formalist, reach out for help. Your pediatrician can provide insight into whether your child’s behavior is normal for their age, and provide resources for support.
