Parenting a child, adolescent, or young adult with emotional, behavioral, or learning difficulties presents many unique challenges. Usually, the parenting strategies that work for a child without these difficulties are not effective for children with diverse needs. Over time, cycles of negative interactions can develop, leaving both parents and children feeling frustrated. Parents might also feel uncertain about how to best support their child in reaching their goals related to school, work, independent living, and relationships. Parents may also struggle with validating their children, setting limits around things like money, bedtimes, and screen time, and regulating their own emotions while parenting.
Fortunately, specialized parenting help is available for parents of young children through young adults. CBC offers two main approaches to treat parenting issues: Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and behavioral parent training.
