As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) that has worked with many children of all ages and every kind of child behavior problem and as a mother of THREE myself, I understand what you are going through. When my oldest son was a toddler, he rarely slept, he couldn't sit still unless strapped to a high chair, and his daily tantrums often left me drained and stressed. I suddenly became extremely aware of how difficult it can be as a parent dealing with a child behavior problem.
My background had given me a lot of techniques, but nothing that quite prepared me for what it was like from a personal perspective to deal with this type of problem. As a result, I started doing my research. I learned and applied every technique possible and then discovered, when he was three years old, that he had a sensory processing disorder. I was familiar with autism and ADHD, but was not aware of this often misdiagnosed disorder. It led me to creating this website to help other families facing similar issues.
Now, I am happy to report that as a result of applying all of the techniques from this eBook and those provided for FREE throughout this website, my son is doing extremely well! He even got an award at his school for having the best manners, with only 2 kids chosen from each grade. His teachers are constantly impressed by his flexibility with changes to schedules, having no problem when things changed and demonstrating acceptance of not being able to do certain activities. As for his diagnosis of SPD, most people would never even know! We still work hard on organization and remembering to do things when asked, but overall, I am so proud of his progress!
Proactive strategies and prevention are the best way to help with decreasing a child behavior problem. Once engaging in things like aggression, self injurious behavior or just a flat out meltdown, it's like trying to steer an out of control car with a flat tire back onto the road... Many times this is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT! If you know a flat tire is about to occur and you know how to prevent a flat tire from happening in the first place, you don't have to wait until the car is about to crash.
Another reason to apply the methods in the book are to help strengthen the use of other more traditional reactive techniques, such as time outs when responding to a problem. These can be an effective tool for aggression and responding to other undesirable behaviors, but initially it can also substantially increase aggression. Once in time out, you may continue to see aggressive behavior in children even more severely than before.
As a result, parents may unintentionally use the method improperly, coming to the conclusion that time outs just don’t work. However, if you put proactive strategies in place first as outlined in my eBook, you will find when you do need to use time outs, they will be much easier to do and way more effective. You may even automatically see a decrease in a child behavior problem, like temper tantrums and meltdowns in general just by applying the outlined concepts provided in the book.
