The Capricious Child

For the Capricious Child: Do you have a child who seems to be ‘acting on impulse’? This child may be making bad choices by acting without thinking and you are trying to figure out what to do.

Is your child:

  • Experiencing mental health problems, such as ADHD, ADD, RAD, bipolar tendencies, and/or depressive disorders, to name a few?
  • Demonstrating self-harming behaviors, such as cutting? (Note that we will not work with youth who have attempted suicide or have suicidal tendencies, except in unique circumstances)
  • Showing antisocial behavior at home and/or at school?
  • Exhibiting defiant, apathetic, and/or disturbing behavior at home?

These are symptoms of something deeper. If you said yes to one or more of these questions,
