Frustration

How To Help Children And Youth That Experience Frequent Frustration

Since frequent frustration can be a sign of medical challenges, get a medical evaluation from a doctor. Try to pick a doctor who’s open to appropriate alternative practices and follow her/his advice about which practices to investigate for your child or youth. Without help, feeling frustrated frequently can become a lifetime pattern which prevents learning and success. Frustration is the language the child or youth uses to express difficulty. It can easily lead to rage or anxiety. It stops activity. Frustration can be a sign that the child or youth is having learning difficulties or challenges with too-simple learning activities. It can be caused by and complicated by a combination of factors including: family patterns; attention seeking; perceptual difficulties; learning challenges; teaching methods not appropriate to child/teen’s learning style; inability to focus; inappropriate or overly complicated activities; over expectations; fear of making mistakes; anxiety; lack of self-confidence; emotional/physical/intellectual overload; lack of training; memory challenges; nutritional imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants. Some frustration is a normal and necessary part of learning and accomplishment. Persevering and learning to stay calm while frustrated is very important.
