The Checked-out Child

For the Checked-out Child: Do you have a child who sometime seems to be in ‘a melancholy state’? This child may be dealing with something as simple as boredom or as serious as bullying at school.

Is your child:

  • Experiencing bullying or other peer induced negative behaviors at school or elsewhere?
  • Showing boredom or shutting-down during school, at church or at home?
  • Beginning to resist correction or discipline at home and/or at school?
  • Exhibiting anger, apathy, and/or the beginning of potentially disturbing behaviors at home?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions,
