You don’t know how to help your child anymore.
You’ve read all the books and blogs (he needs more attention! He needs less attention! GAAAAHHHH!).
Other parents complain about homework, and you’d be happy just to see your kid get out of the car in the morning carpool line without a breakdown.
(Okay, you’d also like to have less homework battles, if we’re being honest)
You’re starting to wonder if you need to have your child evaluated. ADHD? Autism? OCD? Anxiety?
In fact, it’s giving you anxiety just thinking about it!
You don’t want to go to some stuffy doctor who doesn’t know your child just to fill out a form (and have to ask the teacher to fill one out) and get handed a prescription.
You want your child to feel happy, confident, loved.
You want your child to make friends at school and schedule play dates and sleepovers.
You want your other children to know that they are just as important, just as loved, even though this one child demands more of your attention and time.
It’s not that you like the other children more… they’re just… easier.
What would your morning be like if your child got out of the car with a smile, and said, “see you after school”?
How would your days be different if you didn’t feel a slight panic when the phone rings, hoping it’s not the school calling…again…
What would it mean for your family if homework was not only done without reminders, arguments, or tears, but even turned in on time?
Counseling can help you take a step back from the exhausted state of putting out fires and bracing yourself for the next phone call, so you can focus on being the calm and connected parent you envisioned yourself being.
I believe that helping you feel less anxious about parenting will help your child succeed as well.
I offer counseling to parents and children in The Woodlands, TX and online counseling throughout Texas. I also work closely with any other providers your child sees to ensure a full team approach to helping create confidence and success.
