There are all types of behavior issues that can come up and impact both a child’s functioning as well as the functioning of the family. They can range from mild to severe and can include issues like tantrums, acting out, oppositional behavior, avoidant behavior, lying, stealing etc. It is important to understand what is underlying the behavior first so that an appropriate solution can be found. Sometimes, the behavior can by a symptom of something else that is happening. Some children are more difficult to manage than others and it is helpful to get support on what might be effective in a given situation.
