I help teens, young adults, and parents in the Metro East.
I know, you are so tired of fighting over everything. And that attitude! Where did it come from?
What could they be so angry about or are they just being defiant?
The mornings are plagued with refusals. Refusal to go to school, refusal to get dressed, refusal to say “Good Morning”. And the nights are just chaos.
Did school call again?
When they do it is one of three things; a stomach ache, an emotional meltdown or a fight.
You know something is wrong, but you feel helpless and have no idea how to make it better because nothing you do seems to help. And I would guess that you feel like a failure…defeated…and so sad.
You desperately miss that child who was so happy and predictable. You don’t know what to do with this kid who is always worried or alone in their room.
Maybe this is now affecting the other kids in the home, or your marriage, or your friendships.
Maybe this is now affecting YOU.
