Handling Troubled Kids

Every teen, or child, from time to time is going to rebel and act out in his or her lives; it is bound to happen, yes, even with the most well behaved kids. The level to which they rebel can vary; it might be something as simple as back talking on a single occasion, to things that are extreme such as nasty tantrums or violent and aggressive behavior. Why kids of all age rebel or act out can be for a variety of reasons, how they rebel can be easily controlled, and in some cases, they cannot be. If you notice that your child or teenager’s behavior has started to change, and not for the better, than you need to start paying more attention to your child and what is going on in his or her life.


Possible Causes for the Behavior

 Instinctually, when your child starts acting in a manner that is not acceptable, you may want to get angry, panicked, or agitated. As understandable as those feelings are, you need to consider what is triggering the behavior. Has an important friendship or relationship ended or a major fight occurred? Is there a bully tormenting your son or daughter at school or after? Are there stresses related to classes that you are unaware that could explain your child’s behavior? Observe your child and see if you can determine what triggers their behavior.

Attention Seekers

 In some cases, children decide the best way to get the attention that they long for from their parents are by acting out. Instead of trying to gain their parents attention through positive actions and behaviors, they act out. If you have an extremely busy life as a parent, with both your work and social life and have noticed changes in your child’s behavior, consider carving out more time in your schedule for your child or children, the results may surprise you.

Lack of Emotional Outlet or Just Troubled Kids

 There are some kids that, no matter what their parents or guardians do, they have trouble with aggressive and antisocial behavior. They have no understanding on what is proper when it comes to dealing with problems, stresses, or interpersonal relationship issues. On the flipside, there are children who display negative behaviors because it is the only way for them to release the pain and frustration they may be feeling from being from a broken home, or having issues in a variety of other places, such as school and/or socially.  If you have, a child that is considered ‘troubled’ reprimanding them may only exacerbate the situation causing further problems.

How to Help These Kids

 If you have noticed your child displaying any behavior that is depressive, aggressive, or violent there are things that you can do to help them and minimize the potential damage.

  •  Give your child or children more of your time. As great as things are, nothing is better for your child than your time.
  • Open the lines of communication with your child, discuss all topics, serious and otherwise.
  • Encourage them to explore their talents or interests in sports, music, or art.
  • Frequently remind your child that they are loved. Everyone, especially children, need to know they are loved.
  • Give them a bit of freedom, but with reasonable guidelines, so you can show them their behavior has earned your trust.
  • Monitor their behavior both online and off, this includes monitoring smartphones and all other devices with internet access. You can do this with a parent control tracking application like mSpy.

Paying attention to your child, or children’s, behavior can help you help them if they begin to act out, or prevent troubled behavior from starting.
