Is your child's favorite word "no" while saying "yes" to the wrong things?
Does your teenager defy almost everything, including your help?
Are you exhausted and worn out from your child's
defiant or destructive behaviors and choices?
struggling or if
you're losing sleep over your child,you
know too well how difficult life has become.
These are just a few of the many areas where your child or teenager
may be hurting:
poor school performance
using or experimenting with drugs / alcohol
dangerous or risky behavior
excessive video gaming
refusing to do chores / uncooperative
lying / stealing / deceitful /
ADHD focusing issues
displaying temper outbursts
friendship / bullying issues
loss of a loved one
Your family may not be able to
move forward until your son or daughter works through these difficulties,
which may seem to be popping up everywhere. You've likely tried
everything that's in your parental power in order to help the situation.
There are times when these problems do go beyond parenting.
