Many parents are exasperated with their child and want their child to be "fixed." However, it is rare that seeing only the child will completely resolve the problems, because all family members are affected by one member's behavior. Often, many problems you have with your child can be solved by making some changes in how you parent. You may be trying to parent your child the same way you did when he was 5 or 10 years old. Or you may, even unconsciously, be parenting the same way your parents did, which was in another day and time altogether. Those parenting strategies may not be effective any longer.
There are two or three mistakes that most parents make. Even good parents often need to try a new perspective or technique to improve their communication with their child and to increase cooperative behavior. I provide individual sessions with parents on improving their parenting skills and strategies. I am also planning to begin a parenting group/class soon; look for more imformation on this in the near future. Invest in your relationship with your child by scheduling a session with me! 678-209-1348 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
