To Create Change
In the way a child behaves, a parent has to change the way he or she interacts with the child and responds to his or her behaviors.
In many cases, a child's behaviors are directly related to and or as a result of very specific motivations. Children, like everyone else, will do things that are rewarding to them or get them out of things that they don’t like. Sometimes those can be good behaviors and sometimes can be bad behaviors but the motivation is the same.
It's Not Your Child, It's You
As a family therapist working with behavioral children, I noticed that many parents are surprised or sometimes even resistant to the idea of working directly with a therapist, expecting instead that therapist should be working mainly with a child.
Working with parents is critical because they are the most influential people in their child's life.
