“Life is managed – not cured.”
Is your family life in chaos due to the behavior
of your child?
Is your child displaying any of the following self-destructive
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
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.
