Elaine here from The Parent Practice and I absolutely get how frustrating, exhausting and bewildering it can be when you are in the midst of dealing with aggressive behaviour such as spitting and sibling squabbles, where he seems to be the perpetrator all the time and your little girl is the target.
The good news though is that based on how he is outside the home, it does appear that he has a moral compass and knows how to behave and does follow the rules, so there are no major behavioural issues that would indicate CAMHS should be involved. Whilst family therapy may be useful, the problem is that when we take our children to see professionals too early, they are often left thinking 'what's wrong with me'?
At The Parent Practice we believe that we as parents have the biggest influence on how children see themselves and how they behave and depending on our ability to stay calm in the face of provocative behaviour and our ability to be proactive and not reactive, the outcomes will be very different
Knowing how to connect and communicate is a great place to start, so our children's self esteem can grow and they feel heard and respected and less likely to exhibit challenging behaviour to get attention
Happy to jump on a discovery call with you to see if we are the right people to help if that's of any helphttps://meetme.so/theparentpractice
