Regardless of the amount of love and support that a parent provides, parenting children with behavioral problems can still present challenges. Sometimes it is easy to get so caught up in the problem that we forget to praise and reinforce positive behaviors. In addition, problematic behaviors may be a sign of a deeper issue such as depression, anxiety, or social conflicts. Additionally, some adolescents may struggle as they develop their sexual identity and may need additional support to talk about their feelings. Therapy can be an effective way to cope with these challenges. I believe it is essential to work with the client and their family to develop new solutions to produce lasting changes.
