Parenting strategies for challenging behaviors

Can you relate to any of these?

Are you overwhelmed with the contradictory parenting advice out there?

Are your child’s challenging behaviors causing you to feel emotionally drained?

Do you feel like nothing you are trying is working & you don’t know what else to do?

Does your child’s behaviors get big real fast?


Hey there, not to worry we are here to assist you through every step of the way. No challenging behavior too big or no child too small. 

We understand how difficult it can be to have a child that just requires more. Which is why we offer support that is tailored to you and your family’s needs. By working together, we’ll create a plan that addresses the root causes of the behavioral challenges. This plan will walk you through step by step how to reduce the parenting power struggles in your home. Here are some examples of 5 steps that likely will explore in sessions. 

Step 1. We work on rebuilding your inner resources. 

This is done by making your own needs a priority. We also will look at ways of supporting your own regulation so that you have energy to support your child’s regulation needs.

Step 2. We look at your child’s behaviors from a big picture. 

Such as if any tweaks in the morning and evening routines might help. Consider if any additional complications that may be contributing to the behaviors, such as skin conditions, and sensory sensitivities. 

Step 3. Explore the challenging behaviors through your child’s eyes. 

Often a favorite step of parents, seeing the world through their eyes opens the door for growth for both the parents and their children. Once we understand their why, then we support your child around any lagging skills your child may have. As well as exploring considerations to compensate in their environment that are draining their inner resources.  

Step 4. Explore communication breakdowns

How we were raised often influences this step. Therefore, we’ll identify areas that might need a different approach in order to see the success you are hoping for. In addition, we’ll explore any different parenting styles from your partner that might be adding inconsistencies in parenting approaches. 

Step 5. Repair and reconnect: Building bonding 

Lastly, we learn the repair and reconnect approach. This is a very valuable life skill that is teaching several key things at once. Step 5 is where all these skills really sink in. 

These skills that you’ll learn about yourself, and your child will be invaluable for their future. 

Imagine instead of waking up dreading the screaming and shouting that’s to come. 

AND instead, still have energy at the end of the day. 

Imagine feeling equipped and confident in being out in public with your child(ren). 

Sign up for an initial session to get started. Look forward to seeing you on the inside.
