What types of behaviors can Behavol modify? Behavol can help modify behaviors that are aggressive, hurtful, dangerous or socially inappropriate such as biting, hitting, kicking and pushing. It should not be used for developmental behaviors like potty training, speech, cognitive growth, motor skills, and emotional development.
Is Behavol safe? Behavol is made from safe and natural ingredients found in many food products. The product replaces alternative home remedies such as castor oil, hot-sauce, soap and other bad tasting things that cannot be used safely or consistently to validate their effectiveness.
Where should Behavol be administered? Experts agree that discipline is most effective when administered in the privacy and safety of your residence where communication can be easily facilitated. It is not recommended to use Behavol in public places such as stores or restaurants. Behavol should only be administered in a controlled and secured environment. This prevents the child from running away and/or endangering himself.
What should I do if the child refuses to take Behavol? After a child gets Behavol once, it's possible the child will resist in the future. Some suggestions for an unwilling child include:
* Talk in a calm voice and tell the child that Behavol will help him/her remember why the behavior is inappropriate
* Set the child in time-out to calm down
* Tell the child that if the behavior doesn't happen again, Behavol won't be necessary
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
