Are you worried about your child’s ability to cope?
Does your child struggle at home and at school?
Does your child’s struggle impact how you interact with them?
Does this have a detrimental effect on the whole family?
All children develop and grow differently, at different speeds and in different ways. No matter how they do it though, there are certain milestones that have to be hit. If your child never masters them, it can affect their ability to reach their full potential as adults.
This week's show on Be You Parenting, Maxine Haller, OTR/L shared how she helped her son through his own struggles in life and what parents need to be aware of so that their child doesn’t struggle needlessly.
I found the information that Maxine shared on the show to very informative and applicable for parents with children of all ages. I encourage you to listen to the replay and see what information you gleam from it that may apply to your child. Here are a few highlights:
Maxine has a free questionnaire on her website: KidsBrainTreeFoCo.com that parents can use to see what may be of concern to them and what they can do with their child that will help them. It is a wonderful place to start, if you aren't sure whether to your child's achieving the milestones that will ensure strong development. She also offers a free 20 minute consultation.
I feel so fortunate to have met Maxine and appreciate how passionate she is about the helping kids and parents move beyond struggle that is due to mis-wiring.
Finally, one last comment on struggle. As parents, we can be afraid to let our children struggle. Some struggle is beneficial for development, like figuring out how their bodies work, what natural consequences are, and leaning how to be in the world. It is when their is an overload or intense reaction to their environment that indicates their struggle may be due to neurological or developmental issues.
