Defiance is a common problem and a normal part of a child’s development. Defiance may be shown through talking back, refusing to obey rules, arguing, ignoring directions, failing to comply with requests, or tantrums (which can be the case in younger child ren). Defiance may also take the form of a child doing something you asked very, very slowly. Extreme defiance, or defiant behavior that persists for a prolonged period of time and interferes with a child’s school performance or relationships with friend s and family, can be a symptom of an underlying emotional or behavioral issue that needs further assessment.
The question of how to handle a defiant child is something most parents and school staff have struggled with. Understanding why defiance occurs and what is behind a child’s defiant behavior is an important part in addressing the problem and helping to find a solution. While, at the same time, parents and school staff must also understand how their response to the defiance can lead to more misbehavior.
Through this FREE presentation by Dr. Mervin Langley of Aurora Behavioral Health, information will be share d regarding what defiance is, how parental /school staff responses can impact defiant behavior, and how to successfully understand, manage, and reduce behaviors through effective strengths - based strategies. The strategies are geared towards children ages 4 - 1 5, but parents and school staff with older or younger children may also benefit from this information. Applicable hand-outs will be provided.
