Why do bright, intelligent young people, who have everything going for them, embark upon a journey of self-destruction? Why do they purposely hurt the people who love them most?

Your childs destructive behaviors are most likely symptoms of an underlying issue, disorder, addiction, or trauma. Rather than address the symptom it is extremely important that the core issue is identified and managed. Wiping your nose doesn't make your cold go away. It's merely a temporary fix until you must grab for another tissue.

Many kids behave the way they do because of payoffs. It may be difficult to see any positive payoff that your child may derive from their destructive behaviors but an understanding of the core issue can clarify the reasons for specific behaviors.

Once the core issue has been identified then the appropriate steps can be taken to find your child and family the help that will address the the underlying issue.

Children with certain behavior disorders are cognitively incapable of comprehending the consequences that may occur from an action. The correct intervention can help a child manage his behavior in a positive way.

Low self esteem is a core issue behind many negative behaviors. Re-establishing a healthy self-image is vital to long term positive performance. Be sure that whatever intervention that you do choose instills life long positive change by dealing with the core issues.

Many parents choose to pursue interventions that address the symptoms only. Attacking the symptoms will drive the destructive behaviors underground - to resurface at a later date. This approach wastes valuable time and resources and may even make things worse.

The Family Compass brings together a vast collection of resources that will help families find their bearings. Including informational articles and books, hotlines and helplines, advice, a directory of related websites, how-tos, recommendations, support, and much more.
