Understanding & Supporting
"Challenging" Kids

A Learning & Support Group for Parents & Caregivers

Are you struggling to understand what your child needs in order to regulate their emotions and behaviors, stop hitting or yelling, attend school, or be more interested in life? Do you want to help them live in a world that asks them to change?

If you find your child's behaviors frustrating, confusing, alarming...if you wonder whether your child will EVER get along in the world...if you are worried you don't know how best to support them...and even if you are worried about your own physical safety. You are not alone.

You've probably tried all the things: the charts, the rewards, the threats and punishments...you've tried being more consistent, holding firmer boundaries, and even just giving in (let's face it, sometimes the only thing we can do to survive in a moment is to "give in"). I'm going to help you shift your perspective on these challenges, and learn how and why to do things altogether differently.

  • Mondays 12:00p-1p EST via Zoom
  • Flexible 5-session commitment
  • Open enrollment through March 6
  • Intake & Learning Session ($175)
  • Group Sessions ($75/individual or $100/household)

While ALL children's brains and bodies are still growing, some of them need more help from us in order to build regulation skills. They need us to help them FEEL safe, because when kids do not feel safe, they lash out, punch, kick, run away and do all kinds of things that make us worry. Hint: just because everything looks safe to us does not mean their nervous system experiences it as safe.

There is no chart, reward, or punishment that will change their ability to do better. Instead, what they need is our regulated adult brain to co-regulate with over and over again. And even if regulation is something you struggle with, it is something you can increase right alongside your kid.

If you're interested in learning more through a supported group, I hope you'll join me 1 or 2 times a month on Mondays at 12-1p.

This is an open group, so you can enroll at any time through March 6. Join me for a private intake and learning session, then attend between 5-11 group sessions, scheduled for Jan 16 & 30, Feb 6 & 20, March 6 & 20, April 3 & 17, May 1, 15, & 29.

Send me an email at amy@wildchildcounseling.com and let me know you're interested in joining the parent coaching group.
