From time to time all children experience feelings of stress, anxiety or depression. Most of them will use a range of positive coping strategies to help them overcome these temporary difficulties.
Sometimes, these negative feelings will last a long time, and they may lead to them adopting some negative coping strategies. Negative coping strategies might include:
- School refusal;
- Withdrawal from friends and family;
- Challenging behaviour.
The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust publish a range of leaflets that can help you support your child through these difficult moments.
