How To Help Children And Youth That Fight

Fights Very Often; Quick Tempered

Children & youth who fight a lot should be given a medical evaluation. Pick doctors who are familiar with the practices listed below and follow their advice. The child or youth who throws the first punch is often the child or youth in the most pain and frustration. Fighting and starting fights is often related to needing to feel safe, be in control of something and release pent-up emotions which cannot be expressed appropriately. Unchecked and not replaced by alternative problem solving methods, fighting can become a life-long pattern with very negative consequences to adult success. Fighting can be related to and complicated by: family patterns; modeling; exposure to family violence; media messages; learning disabilities; listening challenges–including auditory processing, hearing; communication challenges; prolonged stress; depression or other mental illnesses; anxiety; low self-esteem; physical or emotional trauma; abuses of any kind; exposure to environmental pollutants; out of balance nutrition.
