Frequently asked questions about behaviour

We have compiled answers to some of the questions that we often get asked by parents and carers about behaviour.

Just click on the question below to find the answer:


Question 1
My child refuses to wear her seat belt when she gets on the bus or car. She says no and wriggles in her seat when you try to help her to put it on.  What should I do?
Question 2
My son is autistic and he is very stressed after the school day; this is when he likes to let off steam and he can be quite challenging especially for the first hour after getting in.  What can I do to help calm him down?
Question 3
My son smears at home, we have to watch him all the time when he goes to the toilet.  Why is he doing this and how can I get him to stop?
Question 4
My daughter is at SLD high school and will still bite us and hit us when she I upset.  She has a younger sister who gets very distressed about this, so how can we explain what is going on?
Question 5
When playing with his cars my son cannot stop and gets very distressed if he has to share the cars or play with something else.  How can I help him learn to share?

Of course, if you don't find the answer you're looking for here, please get in touch with our team at, or your individual school's co-ordinator and we will make sure that we answer it.  If you are happy for the question to be shared, we will add it to those above.
