Having a special needs child changes everything about your life, from whether you get enough sleep at night to everyday challenges like doing groceries during a tantrum. The demands of raising a child with a developmental disorder are great and families frequently experience tremendous stress coping with daily life.
In my practice, I often see parents and caregivers reacting to children’s challenging behaviors instead of responding. You react to your children’s behaviors by yelling, spanking, threatening or physically forcing them to comply out of frustration and anger. You target your child rather than the problem. The way you behave is influenced by your current emotion.
