Why do bright, intelligent young

people, who have everything going for them, embark upon

a journey of self-destruction?

Why do they purposely hurt themselves

and 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.

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.

find their bearings. Including informational articles and
