Watch this video to learn more about Theraplay!
Are you an adoptive or foster parent having a hard time addressing your child’s tough behaviors and attitudes? Is your child lying, stealing, defiant, aggressive or harming himself or others? Is it hard to have a good relationship with your child because of the negativity between you? Do you feel like you are doing all the “right” things to parent your child but nothing is working?
Well, it could be because your child needs a different kind of parenting than conventional wisdom would have it. Not all adopted children will present such challenges, but past attachment disruptions and possible trauma can affect your child’s development and lead to difficult parent-child relationships.
You can make your relationship with your child your #1 priority and learn how to:
* Understand the roots of specific negative behaviors
* Practice alternative approaches to addressing these behaviors
