Irritable or has angry outbursts, since the injury
Why It Happens:
Stress and changes can lead to frustrations for injured kids. Feeling jumpy all the time, being tired or in pain can make anyone more easily angered. Some head injuries can lead to changes in ability to control emotions or behavior (be sure to ask your child’s doctor about what to expect).
Is This a Problem?:
Is irritability making it hard for your child to get along with family or friends? Is this a big change in your child’s usual personality?
