My house has become a much more peaceful and civil place! It has been very helpful to have our therapist explain to my kids different ways their behavior has had to change and improve. She does it in a playful way that keeps them open to the feedback (it is hard for me – they are not so open to my approach!). Once she has taught them a certain skill, she also gives me a tool to remind them about how to / not to behave in a non-threatening way. IT has made confronting bad behavior much easier for me, and gave me confidence in my parenting style.
I am so thankful for the help she has provided our family. Our stress level has plummeted. We still have our challenges, and there are good days and bad days, but we are worlds ahead of where we were.
