The Challenging Child

For the Challenging Child: Do you have a child who is ‘demanding rigorous attention’. This child may be exhibiting serious behaviors that are a detriment to your child and your family.

Is your child:

  • Experiencing significant mental health issues, such as depression, bi-polar tendencies, suicidal thoughts or threats, or have made attempts on their life?
  • Exhibiting aggressive or angry behavior such as swearing, hurling objects or breaking things, or threatening or harming behavior towards themselves or others?
  • Getting in trouble with the law, due to fights and aggressive behavior at home and school, running away, dabbling in alcohol or drugs, or other anti-social behavior at home and/or at school?
  • Showing a complete disdain for authority, including defiance, apathy, and/or other disturbing behavior?

We understand what it is like to have a child who is a disruption to those around them. If you said yes to one or more of these questions,
