Uncooperative

How To Help Children And Youth That Are Uncooperative

Most Of The Time; Frequently

Being uncooperative can be a message about the child or youth feeling powerless, frightened, confused or angry. Being uncooperative can be an attempt to gain power and control, and it can be an attempt to avoid pain and fear. Without assistance, being uncooperative can become an ineffective habit that can last into adult life. When this happens, learning and living and having successful relationships and careers can be challenging or extremely difficult. Being uncooperative can be caused by a combination of factors including: family patterns; unpredictable environments; over or under stimulating environments; weak communication skills; physical and or emotional discomfort and pain from unresolved shocks, traumas, accidents, difficult births and abuses of all kinds; failures; low self-esteem, depression or other mental illnesses; vision/hearing difficulties; memory challenges; perception challenges; nutritional imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants.

Seek out the assistance of professional guides and therapists you trust.
