  • Meltdowns Behaviour

    If this is recent behavior change, you should contact your pediatrician for help determining if something has happened to cause fear (bullying, physical or sexual abuse) or an event that is upsetting. A referral to a child psychologist could be very helpful in managing the child's behavior. If this behavior is a long standing one, even a continuation of the terrible twos, there may be a biochemical abnormality underlying the behavior. In these cases, even minor changes in expected activities, being asked to stop an enjoyable activity, I have worked with families of several hundred children with this type of behavior. If on psychological evaluation no trigger event is found, a trial of Amantadine HCL, an old medication, can be helpful in relieving the underlying anxiety and restore behavior to a more normal pattern, with few if any side effects. If this is the case, I would be happy to consult with your pediatrician if they contact me. READ MORE
