There are lots of possible reasons for difficult behaviour in intractable toddlers and young children.

Often it’s just because they’re tired, hungry, overexcited, frustrated or bored.

If problem behaviour is causing you or your child distress, or upsetting the rest of the family, it’s important to deal with it.

What you do has to be right for your child, yourself and the family. If you do something you do not believe in or that you do not feel is right, it probably will not work. Children notice when you do not mean what you’re saying.



tractable, flexible, manageable, easy, easygoing

Parts of speech

Noun: intractability

Adverb: intractably
