You see that your child struggles more than other kids their age in school.
Their grades have been falling lately and encouraging them to do their homework is a daily struggle. Their teachers have noticed too. It feels like you’re in constant communication with the teacher and hearing reports of how difficult your child is to manage in school. They tell you that your child is having difficulty paying attention in class and staying on task. Sometimes their absent minded behavior distracts other children as well.
You aren’t sure the best parenting techniques to help your child succeed.
You are noticing behavior problems at home too. Your child seems to get more upset than other kids when you ask them to clean their room or get ready for bed and it takes them a long time to calm down. Sometimes they get so frustrated that they have complete meltdowns.
There’s something wrong, but you’re not sure what it is.
You are frustrated, stressed out, and worried about your child’s future. You don’t know who to talk to since other parents don’t seem to understand what you’re going through.
At BPC, we understand your concerns and the feelings of frustration, confusion, and desperation that they may be causing you. Our behavioral therapists are experts in child behavior and will help you get to the bottom of what is causing these problems.
