These children are challenging!

Let us explain why these children behave as they do:
Imagine…having your first, most important relationship with MOM disrupted when you were an infant or toddler. There may not have been a loving caregiver to tuck you in at night, to smile at your first steps, or to send you off to school. The most important person, your mom, may have been emotionally unavailable. Even worse, she may have been the sources of (or tolerated) your neglect or abuse. Beliefs developed that caused you to view yourself as worthless (or bad), your mom and other adults as untrustworthy, and the world as unsafe.
