How Do I Choose a Good-Fit Counselor for my Child?

After many trial and errors in the world of therapy via counseling, I have come up with some suggestions that may just help other parents.  I am discussing a counselor by the definition of – a person trained to give guidance on personal, social, or psychological problems. The time has come, you have done all what you feel you are capable of doing for your child; your child needs the guidance of a professional trained to help children overcome various situations or disorders. There are a multitude of reasons why a parent may wish to seek counseling services for their […]

Do You Know how Hard it is ….

To sit and listen to people say awful things about you? To sit and hear that you are some huge negative person when in reality you know that you are a positive thinker and do nothing but try to spend your extra time sending positive thoughts to everyone you can,  is such a hard thing to go through. How I handle it is to take a moment to remind myself who it is that is speaking. Is this person a positive person? Does this person’s opinion matter? I don’t believe they are a positive person and quite honestly nope their […]

Communication is Extremely Difficult Sometimes

I always had a way with words, written down on paper, yet to speak to another human being as if they are a human being with feelings has not always been my strong point when I am upset or annoyed.  It is all too easy at times to throw the blame at someone else, specifically your partner in life, when something has not been done or maybe wasn’t done to your liking.  One of the promises I made to myself for this New Year is to start being more open about my feelings, both negative and positive alike. Working on […]

Is Verbal and Emotional Abuse Harder to Prove?

Scenario 1: A kid arrives at school with bruises all over his body and yet has no real logical explanation for these bruises and this kid has been arriving to school with more bruises lately. Scenario 2: A kid arrives at school and seems to be getting grumpier on some days and even lashing out this school year, yet this is a kid who always had been a well behaved, caring kid in school. Which scenario do you think brings more red flags to the faculty at school? I bet scenario 1 gains more attention than scenario 2, the reason? […]

Is Your Fairytale Realistic?

I never really had a fairytale idea of life, if you knew the way I grew up you would know that I didn’t have a fairytale book life nor did a lot of people, however, when I do meet a person who has parents that are still married and raised them together in one household I do wish I had that for my children. I wish that I had that for myself sometimes. The problem with hoping for that is that I grew up just fine raised by who I was raised by. I am happy with who I am. […]

Sit Back and Watch OR Take Action and Assist

We all have decisions to make in life, whether we choose to involve drugs and alcohol in our lives, or spank our children, or have a drivers license. Every single thing we do in life requires the process of thought and action. This is true with friendship, relationships and parenting or any area of life really. As a friend you can watch as another person self destructs, destroys other people’s lives or suffers from issues either past or present. Sitting back and watching is so much easier than admitting to yourself that maybe you should step up and do something […]

Personality vs Looks

When you first meet a person of course it is usually based on looks, the appearance of a person is what attracts you. It is true, even if you deny that fact. There is something about that first meeting and that first look at the person, it may not be their complete appearance, maybe you see something in their eyes that intrigues you, maybe it’s their attractive body parts or maybe it’s just their hairstyle. We see a person physically before we know the person internally, if that makes sense. What happens when that “eye candy” speaks, they open their […]
