Sleep, Toileting, and Feeding
These functions are imperative for survival and impact our daily lives in countless ways. For example, hunger, fatigue and physical discomfort are unpleasant, can decrease our tolerance for stress and, when chronically present, can negatively impact our overall quality of life. For infant and preschoolers struggling with these functions, it may present as meal time power struggles, difficulties settling to fall asleep, waking several times at night, waking up tired, difficulties with the potty training transition, irregular bowel moments, and constipation.
Social & Emotional Difficulties
Children’s social and emotional health affects their overall health and learning. Research indicates that children who are mentally healthy tend to be happier, show greater motivation to learn, have a more positive attitude towards school, more eagerly participate in school activities, and demonstrate higher academic performance than less mentally healthy peers (Hyson, 2004, Kostelnik, 2014). Examples of social and emotional difficulties include: severe temper tantrums and crying to express needs, difficulties transitioning from one activity to another, lack of interest in peers and/or difficulties interacting with peers.
