Parenting is a complex issue. Most parents would like to have an instruction manual
about effective parenting methods but don't have one, so we fall back on the parenting
style our parents used or make it up as we go. How to change a child's behavior in a
positive way is a mystery to most parents.
Common parent concerns:
Counseling can help you develop the "instruction manual" for your child and learn to:
Together we will analyze your child's troublesome behaviors, their likely causes, and
your response to these. Based on this, I help parents learn specific, straight forward,
simple to understand skills that can help improve the behaviors. The parents then try out
these approaches in their home. If they work we move on to the next behavior problem;
if they don't work, we refine or change the approach until we get positive results.
