Help an Impulsive Child Maintain Control

Impulsive kids can have a hard time in school. They have trouble waiting for their turn or standing in line for long. They get impatient and sometimes cause trouble. They blurt out answers to the teacher's questions at inappropriate times. They do and say things without thinking about consequences. Their impulsiveness sometimes makes it hard for them to keep friends.

To help your elementary schooler develop impulse-control:

Ask your child's teacher or school counselor for other ways you can help. If your child's behavior is dangerous or threatening, ask how to find professional help.
