Children experience behavioral issues for a number of reasons - from neurological or psychological diagnoses like autism spectrum disorder or bipolar disorder - to disruptions in family status, unexpected changes in routine or even illness. Behavior issues can range from unexplained tantrums or meltdowns to emotional outbursts to toileting issues. Just like there are a variety of types and reasons for behavior issues, there are a number of treatments, including therapy, sensory diets, medication, holistic training (meditation and mindfulness) or a combination of these.
