Emotional Challenges

How To Help Children And Youth Experiencing Emotional Challenges

After Accidents, Beatings, Fevers, Shocks, Traumas, Family Trouble

Emotional challenges are often expressed through misbehavior. Children & youths’ problematic behavior is a language often based upon emotional confusion. Without sensitive help and guidance, children’s & youths’ emotions can cause behavior that upsets adults, can hurt the child or youth, can hurt others, can hurt property, can develop hard-to-change reputations. Children & youth who have had bad things happen to them are often confused, frightened, or angry (or all of these). Their behavior can often be seen as discharging the stress and confusion they have accumulated. Without help these shocks can create changes in attitude and ability to learn and stay calm. They can create difficulties that can make relaxing, living and learning difficult into adult life. Emotional challenges are often due to and complicated by: physical tensions and resulting chemical imbalances; confusion; isolation.
