It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior
