Thank You!

Thank you to all who have contacted me about my new blog!

Don’t Label My Kid is not just a phrase, it is a mindset that should be embedded in every parent’s mind. It is a way of thinking, a rule we should all adopt.If you have ever questioned whether or not a loved one has a certain disorder that needs treatment, it is imperative that you educate yourself on exactly what the process is to become “eligible” for a diagnoses, and the consequences that are assigned to anyone who is.
The most common questions I have been asked over the years always start with ” Do you think my son/daughter is _______?”
Many people watch shows on television or read something in an article or even listen to advice from a friend, and attempt to diagnose a loved one based on whatever they heard or saw. This blog and my passion after watching this happen over and over for 20+ years is to help people identify root issues for unwanted behaviors, and thinking, and apply appropriate solutions for the issues. This goes against the flow in some mental health circles, as it is a business. Businesses need to make money. As sad as it may seem,every day thousands of kids, and adults are assigned labels by Mental Health professionals, or others that are inaccurate or driven by big producers of drugs who are daily convincing people that they need medicine through media and many other very subtle methods.
There is a time to see a psychiatrist, a time to see a psychologist, a time to see a therapist, and a time to seek out medication. Before you make the decision to do any of those, get information, in detail on the road you are headed down as you make a decision. As a Social Worker, I have seen every angle and have also learned not to believe everything I think….contact me for help with your situation at the link below…don’t waste thousands of dollars on endless dead-end roads. I can help you get directly to the resources you need, without wasting years and lots of money. Thank you all for such great feedback on this blog. Together we can conquer whatever you are facing!

I am a social worker and family coach for 20+ years. I have had around 50 foster kids , worked in every and any type of facility from juvenile centers to clinical treatment centers to schools for expelled youth . I've been successful with starting schools for violent offenders , training hospital staff , entire counties of public school teachers, parents and many more on behavior management and helping families in trouble . I have been honored to speak on many occasions and to teach professionals what is wrong with our systems for kids and adults, and how I was able to have successful outcomes in all the programs that I ran. And yes- I do have all the accolades and awards and pats on the back from high places and degrees but I'm not in this for that recognition. I appreciate the acknowledgement I've received over the years, but I don't even have an " I love me" wall in the office..so I don't even know where those things are anymore ..LOL I have lived a hard life myself and grew up in a very violent and abusive home. My family Is filled with depression , addiction and suicide. I also have had to navigate my way through these areas . I use my own experience to help others. I hope you will join the awesome people who follow me and share their stories. This Is a place to come to keep it real. We all struggle . So on this site we keep it legit. No judgement. What are you waiting for? Follow! tj
