Child Behavior Disorders
Let’s face it…all kids misbehave sometimes. One of the questions that we frequently ask ourselves when our children are engaging in unwanted behavior is, “Why?” Sometimes our children act out as the result of an unfilled need and we can often determine this need by the way we feel when the behavior occurs.
Life is a journey and sometimes we need guidance, someone to help show us the way, or just to help us see the way. The way that is there before us but we just can't quite see...a little nudge here...a little suggestion there.
Some guidance...to make it become clear, to make it easier, to make it better. Guidance to help us be better to our friends, to our family, to ourselves, and most importantly...to our children.
