Do you know an explosive child? Key factors of an explosive child are:
- rigid and inflexible
- lagging skills
- difficulty verbally expressing concerns, needs, and wants
- difficulty managing emotional response to frustration
- difficulty with problem solving
- difficulty with transitions
As a pediatric occupational therapist, I find it important to continue to learn and develop my skills. I recently read a book called The Explosive Child by Dr. Ross Greene. This book has such a positive message: ‚ÄúKids do well if they can‚Äù! Using this message as the key theme, The Explosive Child provides some insight into why these ‚Äúexplosions‚Äù happen and promotes healthy relationships and communication by using Collaborative Problem Solving.
