KNOCK KNOCK

January 7, 2022

I have spoken in the past about the hesitations and fears of the unknown that can lead parents to miss out on receiving help from professionals when their child’s behavior impacts home life in a negative way.  Help that can make huge positive changes in their lives. 

In this blog I want to address another factor that can cause you to put off seeking assistance from an outside entity.  That factor is the sheer exhaustion that comes from even considering the degree of commitment it will take to make inroads and changes for your child and family. 

Sometimes the fatigue of life can cause us to accept less than we deserve, even as we find ourselves struggling up the same, rigorous hills every day.  Even if we know that extra effort is the only way out, but we are so far back on our heels, we sometimes say, no thank you! 

As parents of a child with behavior issues, the stress, lack of sleep and constancy of your job can leave you feeling like you’re sinking in quicksand.  So when a person in my position speaks to you about ways to help your child and in turn help you, I can imagine that your exhaustion might speak loudly to you and cause you to shut down when you consider the commitment to such a task.  

I am here to tell you that you don’t have to do it all by yourself. A professional, like myself, is willing and ready to assist and guide you throughout the process. 

We are here to alleviate the burden by creating resources to help you, to listen to your concerns and to make adjustments together. 

You DO NOT have to carry the water jug all the way up the mountain on your own.

We come equipped to assist you!


The respite you seek and the improvements you dream of can happen.  Yes, the work is up front and it needs consistency and commitment.  But you don’t have to find those things on your own.  

My point is to let you know that the help is at your door; offering to come in and deal with whatever confronts you when managing your child’s behavior.  

Your job is arduous and can be overwhelming on every level.  It’s not easy to ask more of yourself when you feel tapped.  But I am asking you to trust those that know how to help you and open your door to a lighter day. 

Peace and Keep Rising!
