Behaviour Management Support

Why does my child behave like that?

Behaviour can be goal directed.  The four main ‘goals’ are:  


  • Attention seeking,

  • Power seeking,

  • Revenge seeking

  • Avoiding an uncomfortable feeling

How we deal with a challenging child is the big question.

Consistency is the key, however, it can be hard as a parent with a busy lifestyle and the other problems life throws at adults.

It is important that the child recognises that their behaviour is not accidental but learned and it has a direct impact on others. But then again, they can relearn with our support.  By working together with the family, we build strategies to support this behaviour change.
