For all of us, life is full of hassles, frustrations and demands. To be able to deal with life’s challenges effectively, we all need adequate emotional and behavioural management skills. Individuals with emotional and behavioural difficulties struggle to cope with life’s ever-changing challenges and demands. There are no quick fixes or magical solutions that will instantly and permanently change things for a struggling individual. Instead, as parents, teachers, support staff and professionals, we must continuously teach, encourage, and guide the individual through their ongoing journey of developing these critical life skills.
