Trauma, unpleasant situations in school or family struggles may lead to emotional difficulties. Children may begin to withdraw, isolate themselves or display disruptive and/or disturbing behaviours towards towards themselves, their friends and families.
Children who have emotional difficulties display the following behaviours in all or certain settings:
- tell lies
- put the blame on others
- always looking sad or angry
- bully, tease or name-calling
- often irritable or nervous easily
- easily startled by noise, people or environment
- become violent when being questioned or accused
- cry easily and/or lead to hysterical screaming or wailing
- always keeping to self or do not speak to familiar people
- cringe or resist due to fear in changes, strangers or environment
- feel rejected and withdraw when they make a mistake or when ideas are not taken
- panic, stress or anxious in response to situations that seem harmless or irrelevant
