Professional Consultation Services For Parents
Have you ever tried to drive someplace new, using an outdated map? It can be very frustrating trying to get somewhere, on time, with directions that aren’t accurate. You end up driving more miles and taking a longer time to get to where you’re going. You’re lucky if you arrive on time, because; if your map is wrong there will probably also be construction or other delays along the way.
This is similar to what many parents experience when they realize their child has areas they struggle with in academics. Trying to figure out how to get help and what kind of help can be very confusing if you don’t know which way to turn for reliable information.
Not knowing which way to turn, in driving or your child’s life, can have frustrating consequences. It will…
- Be confusing and difficult to know which way to go.
- Take you longer to get to where you need to be.
- Take more energy (or gas) to reach you destination.
- Wear you down emotionally.
- Further frustrate your child, increasing the likelihood of negative behaviors. (even if they are only in the back seat of the car!)
