I may start a new thing on my blog and call it "Parenting Difficult Children: Advice from a Behavioral Health Paraprofessional" or something like that. Although many kids just have more challenging personalities, all have hope and all can be taught to mind their parents. So if you feel like you are sometimes fed up and don't know what to do, and have really tried your best; you don't have to rely on social services to help. Just pick up a few tricks from the handy dandy internet and see if they work for you!
The first bit, I'd like to talk about single parents who have a difficult child to raise. It can be even more challenging because you don't have a teammate to back you up. It's a lot more work, so I don't recommend single parenthood, if you can avoid it. But it's not all negative. In a way, it's good because you only need to be consistent with yourself rather than another person. You get to be the good cop AND the bad cop. I do give props to those who make it happen and work their tail ends off to take care of their kiddos. I don't know how you do it, but I know those kids are grateful you did not give them up for adoption or abortion. And one day, they will be adults who will be grateful. And grateful adults are very powerful beings.
Okay, let me know if you have a specific topic you want covered, otherwise I'll just keep going with whatever I happen to be working on with my clients.
Much loves all over. <3 p="">3>
