Rebellious, stubborn, aggressive and emotional – these are the words that so many people use to describe your child. Melt downs have become a common occurrence in your home and when they lash out it seems so extreme in comparison to the situation. And It’s not just at home, but it even happens in the grocery store, at the park, a friend’s home, and at school. They don’t listen to their teachers, they don’t get along with their peers, they’re not doing their schoolwork, they are even behind academically (even though you support them educationally on a daily basis).
Every day you dread the phone ringing from the school and homework time has become a nightmare. Your kid has even started to believe they are “bad” and that no one likes them. But you know they are tender hearted and full of potential. You just don’t know how to get through to them anymore. You’re embarrassed and you feel incapable of helping them manage all that they feel. You see your child and instantly feel guilty and want to cry. The constant doubt plays in your head “what did I miss? Where did I go wrong? Was I too strict or not strict enough?” You look at this person whom you love so much and you are at a loss for how to support them.
You are at your wits end and ready to throw your hands in the air to surrender. You’ve tried everything you can and you are now at a loss.
