for kids and teens
As a parent it can be hard, confusing at times, to connect to your child who is acting out.
‘Why does every conversation with my son end in yelling?’ ‘How can I get my daughter to tell me what she is feeling? I’m worried how she is handling the divorce.’ ‘Teachers keep contacting me and the school is trying to diagnose my son with ADHD, but he is just going through a lot right now.’
I hear these concerns from parents weekly and while therapy is a brave and wonderful step toward change YOU are the expert on your child. Your child is with you everyday while a counselor only sees them for an hour a week. Utilizing these therapeutic activities at home can build upon the relationship you have at home! Give one a try and let me know how it goes.
