Dealing with difficult kids
« on: November 14, 2012, 11:32:20 AM »
By Fiona Baker,     expert
Dealing with behavioural problems early pays dividends later in life

Teaching mums and dads how to deal with difficult kids is one of the most powerful ways to stop naughty children becoming antisocial adults with mental disorders, says a Sydney child psychology expert.
 
Professor Mark Dadds, director of the Child Behaviour Research Clinic at the University of NSW, describes programs that teach parents how to deal with their kids conduct problems as "one of the major achievements of the mental health sciences ¯.
 
"Evidence from our own clinic shows when parents of kids with [clinical] conduct problems are taught these strategies, about 60 per cent of kids move into a non-clinical range pretty quickly, ¯ Dadds says.


Phases vs problems

Conduct problems, he says, are ongoing and repetitive difficult behaviours. They can range from aggressive behaviours, tantrums and acting out violently to eating non-foods and not following instructions.
 
"Every child will go through?phases where they?display conduct problems " but if the phase?doesnt stop intervention is probably needed. See your GP and get a referral to a child psychologist, ¯ Dadds says.

Not the parents fault?

While bad parenting can produce kids with a wide range of problems, Dadds says its wrong to assume that?difficult kids are caused by poor parenting.
 
"There are so many factors that can contribute to a child displaying conduct problems " it could be years of chronic ear infections or other pain, it could be temperament and just the way the child is.
 
"Ask what came first " the child with problems or some poor parenting practices. ¯
 
While Dadds focuses on programs for parents with difficult children, he says all parents can benefit from learning strategies on raising kids, such as those designed by Australias Triple P Parenting

5 tips on discipline
1.Tell your child what to do rather than what not to do " for example, "Walk in the house ¯ not "Dont run in the house ¯. 
2.Ensure kids understand the consequences for breaking the rules, which should be fair and age appropriate.
3.Act quickly when children misbehave. The consequences need to relate to the behaviour so follow through immediately.
4.Stay calm and tell your child in a firm, pleasant voice what you want them to do.
 5.Praise your child when they behave well.

first of all unki age group per aa ker unki likings ke acc. discussion kro after that when they become friendly to u then chennelize their energies on right track acc. to your own way. you will see that they will autometically behave acc. to u or what u want from them even they will obey u if u uses rigid ways also.

Govt must allow some type of punishment, standard of education is falling due to zero powers of teachers to punish, struck off and to fail..
