The Family Behavior Toolbox (FBT) is a self-help resource for parents and family members to understand behaviours and manage the challenges in raising children between the ages of 2 and 12.
Welcome to the Family Behavior Toolbox!
The Family Behavior Toolbox (FBT) is designed to be a self-help resource for parents and family members to understand the behavior they are encountering and the options available to deal with it. FBT has been created by the same team responsible for the Child, Adolescent and Autism editions used by professionals around the world.
You may have been given access to this site after visiting an education, mental health or healthcare professional, or you may have gained access through your library service or through other approved organizations but your objective will be the same, to find a solution to behavior displayed by a son or daughter or other family member.
To help you understand some of the fundamental issues surrounding challenging behavior we have prepared some general guidance which suggests the things you need to consider and the possible reasons for the difficult behavior. You may already know where the problem lies but it is worth taking a moment to consider all the possibilities. To learn more, visit the general guidance pages.
