Parenting can be one of the most difficult, yet rewarding responsibilities in life. Unfortunately, kids do not come with a manual and are often times dealing with issues they have not expressed to their parent. These issues may not seem like a big issue to others, but are a real issue to kids and can impair their functioning.
Behavioral problems can stem from a number of issues. Your therapist can help you understand the reason for your child’s misbehavior. They will help you identify ways to decrease the behavior and find ways to improve your child’s self-esteem and cooperation.
Your therapist may ask you to participate in the therapeutic process as a way to help you find new ways to deal with your child’s difficulties and help you find new ways to help strengthen your relationship. Your therapist will work to help you recognize the purpose behind your child’s behavior, without asking them why they are doing what they are doing. They will also work with you to identify an effective approach to your child's misbehavior.
