NOISE

Practical and Innovative Support for Parents of Hard-to-Parent Children

 
Currently Open to New Members (parents only)
"Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children, and no theories." -John Wilmot
 
 
 
Here at Heritage Counseling Center we provide a group called NOISE (every other Tuesday evening) specifically for parents of hard-to-parent kids (ages 8-18). It exists because in every community there are parents struggling with fear, resentment or even hopelessness regarding their behaviorally challenged child. The NOISE in their homes truly is deafening and disorienting certain days or moments and they need not go it alone any longer.
A great deal of chaotic NOISE can be disorienting. Have you ever told your kids to be quiet in the car when you were lost or trying to navigate through a big city or perhaps a place where you were anxious? You asked for quiet, maybe even begged for quiet so you could simply concentrate and get through. When your child is acting out and there is this chaotic NOISE it can be disorienting in your own home with your own children. This is precisely why a strong, supportive group of other like-situated parents is important. Together you can overcome the NOISE.
This group for parents offers instruction, support, positive feedback, inspiration and motivation. You won't feel alone anymore and together you can strategize more effective ways to cope and parent. All too often we see parents trying to go it alone.
Our culture discourages interdependence like we all should somehow figure it out alone. This is not a good strategy when it comes to raising hard to parent kids. We don't believe it necessarily takes a village to raise a child but it definitely takes connected and supported parents.
If you are struggling with resentment, hopelessness or simply a great lack of effectiveness towards your hard to parent child, get connected here in the group NOISE for the kind of strategy changes needed to help your child become more and more aware of his/her own self-sabotaging choices and reactions, moreover the kind of emotional and relational support YOU as a parent need to lead your beloved but hard to parent child(ren).
NOISE is limited to parents of children age 8-18 who are "hard to parent." Both parents are welcome to attend for the same session fee.
Topics will include (but are not limited to):
 
  • Tantrums
  • Chores and parental requests
  • Coping with stress/anxiety
  • Separation anxiety
  • Step-parenting
 
  • Custom strategies for you and your child
  • Mental illness
  • Defiance
  • Self-destructive behaviors
