The Benefits of Weighted Blankets on Aggressive Behavior
Is your child exhibiting aggressive behavior? Young children and teenagers often lash out with aggressive behavior due to emotional stress caused by life changes, traumatic experiences, or an influx of hormones beyond their control. Hitting, combativeness, and distraction are common red flags that your child may be under the influence of anxiety.
Whether the behavior is learned or developmental, solutions range from parental coaching, to speaking with therapists, to prescription medication. Studies have shown there’s noticeable improvement of attitude when deep pressure therapy is used to reduce aggression. Mosaic Weighted Blankets® can lend a hand to your child or loved one through DPTS. Crafted with a specific weight for each person, a weighted blanket soothes and comforts much like a massage.
Wrapped around shoulders, layered over the body, or even draped over your child's lap, a weighted blanket is an easy, prescription-free way to gain focus and relaxation. Without being too heavy, the deep pressure from a Mosaic Weighted Blanket triggers the body to produce serotonin, which naturally calms us down. After some time serotonin converts to melatonin, the hormone that invites the body to rest through sleep. Improving your child's mood and getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to treat periodic aggressive behavior and help your child feel rejuvenated.
