Habits and Procrastination
Does your child find it hard to get motivated to tackle home chores and school projects?
Does your child struggle with repetitive habits such as hair pulling, nail biting or skin picking to the point that he or she cannot complete tasks in a timely manner?
Does your child engage in overeating, smoking or abusing substances?
Does your child spend a lot of time with organizational difficulties or seem confused about how to begin assignments?
If you can identify with any of these questions, the Good life Center for Mental Health may be able to help you and your child. Children who procrastinate tend to live below their full potential. They have a hard time engaging in complicated projects, usually experience higher levels of dissatisfaction and tend to underachieve academically. Furthermore, they tend to be critical of themselves and experience emotional distress.
Has your child been expressing that….
- he or she doesn’t feel like tackling difficult projects and tasks.
- he or she simply “can’t get rid of” unhealthy habits, such as overeating, drinking or using recreational drugs.
- he or she is not in control of his or her hair pulling, skin picking or nail biting and believes that these habits are too impossible to change.
- he or she frequently feels overwhelmed at school, home or in social situations.
If any of these ring true, then you are in the right place. You have taken the first step in helping your child overcome negative habits and better control his or her life. At the Good Life Center for Mental Health we will assess your child’s motivation and help him or her set up realistic targets. In our collaborative approach, we roll up our sleeves and partner with children on setting achievable goals and teach evidence-based strategies that will bring desired results.
