Identify Your Child’s Triggers

Being able to identify how our kids are feeling and what they are thinking just before and just after a misbehavior is HUGE in understanding how to prevent poor choices from happening again in the future.

A trigger is something that occurs in response to a thought or situation. Children are triggered by common situations such as:

  • being asked to do something they don’t want to do
  • being told, “No”
  • craving attention
  • sibling rivalry
  • hunger
  • lack of sleep
  • family stress

Regardless of the reasons, parents can work with their kids to identify behavior triggers as a way to find solutions that can pave the way for positive choices.
