Is My Child's Anger Normal?
Most children have occasional tantrums or meltdowns. They may sometimes lash out if they’re frustrated or be defiant if asked to do something they don’t want to do. But when kids do these things repeatedly, or can’t control their tempers a lot of the time, it may be more than typical behavior.

Life is a journey and sometimes we need guidance, someone to help show us the way, or just to help us see the way. The way that is there before us but we just can't quite see...a little nudge here...a little suggestion there.

Some guidance...to make it become clear, to make it easier, to make it better. Guidance to help us be better to our friends, to our family, to ourselves, and most importantly...to our children.

Did you know?

Let’s face it…all children misbehave sometimes. One of the questions that we frequently ask ourselves when our children are engaging in unwanted behaviors is, “Why?” A child’s behavior almost always serves some type of purpose for that child; however, when you find yourself with more questions than answers it may be time to consider a more serious condition such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder or ODD. ODD is defined by a recurrent pattern of developmentally inappropriate levels of negativistic, defiant, disobedient, and hostile behavior toward authority figures. Children with this disorder are best served by a licensed mental health professional who can provide both individual and family therapy.
