ANTISOCIAL

BEHAVIOR
Characterized by:

Aggression
Hostility toward authority
Deceitfulness
defiance
Factors for antisocial behavior in
children
School and neighborhood environment
Genetics and family history
Poor and negative parenting practices
Violent, unstable, or tumultuous home life

Hyperactivity and neurological problems can also cause antisocial behavior. Youth
with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD)have been found to be at a higher
risk of developing antisocial behavior.
What are the symptoms of antisocial
behavior in children?
Abusive and harmful to animals and people
Lying and stealing
Rebellion and violating rules
Vandalism and other property destruction
Chronic delinquency
This type of conduct often means your child
is showing signs of antisocial behavior.
Antisocial behavior is manageable, but can lead to
more severe problems in adulthood if left untreated.
Some adults may perceive that some childrens behavior
towards other children as antisocial when children poke,
pull, hit or kick other children when they first introduced, it
is fairly normal. REMEMBER that children at this stage are
still forming their own world views and other children may
seem like a curiosity that they need to explore.
Parents and teachers can help children
make friends:
Expose the children to kid-rich environments (e.g.
playgrounds, park).
Create a play group in your class and let the children mingle
with their classmates.
When your children hit other children, remind them that
their behavior hurts others.
Coordinate with the parents and other teachers so that the
children will have greater opportunity to interact with other
children.
Preventing antisocial behavior(early
intervention is key to preventing antisocial behavior)
Primary intervention- this would include engaging
students in school-wide activities that could deter
antisocial behavior.
Secondary intervention- this targets students who are
at risk for developing antisocial tendencies and
engaging them in individualized activities.
Tertiary prevention(treatment)- the step is continuing
intensive counseling. This treats antisocial students and
students with chronic patterns of delinquency and
aggression.
SELF CONTROL
Self control

The ability to control oneself, in particular ones


emotion and desires or the expression of them in
ones behavior especially in difficult situations.
Lets look at the steps to developing
self-control
1) The foundation of self-control is trust.
2) Children learn emotional regulation from our modeling.
3) Little ones take their cues about anxiety from us.
4) Self control is made possible by the developing the brain.
5) Practice makes perfect.
6) Empathic limits give kids practice in self-discipline.
7) Waiting is good practice up to a point.
8) Children learn self-control naturally as they attempt to master
their world.
Once children reach school age, they begin to
take pride in their ability to do things and their
capacity to exert effort. They like receiving
positive feedback from their parents and
teachers. This becomes a great opportunity for
parents and teachers to encourage positive
emotional responses from children by
acknowledging their mature, compassionate
behaviors.
