Parents may face many challenges raising their children. It is not always easy to know how to interact with a child who does not listen to his or her parents, who is defiant, in opposition, and who perhaps uses foul language, threatens, hits, kicks and bites. Every child may behave in this way on occasion, but if this type of behavior becomes a pattern that lasts over a longer time period and the parents feel that they are at a loss, they may need someone to help them.
It is important to distinguish between information or general advice about child rearing and measures for parents of children who have particular challenges that the parents wish to prevent or treat. PMTO and TIBIR are services that target parents of children who have developed or who are showing early signs of behavioral problems.
If as a parent you find that you are unhappy in your parenting role and/or are experiencing many challenges in relation to your child, we encourage you to get in touch with one of our services for an informal conversation.
If you want to read more about how you can deal with your child's challenging behavior, we recommend these books:
