Kids Own The Labels They Are Assigned..

When a child or a teen is ” diagnosed” and assigned a label, they begin to own the definition of the label. If for example, a teen is told by a doctor and his parents that he or she has ” anger management ” issues, they begin the process of fulfilling that ” calling ” on their life, just as kids who are constantly reinforced by their parents about their gifts and strengths tend to grow into those gifts.

So whatever the assigned label you give your child , and you openly discuss around them and with other adults, just remember  they are kids. They are looking to the people who make impressions in their life, and those they trust to tell them what and who they are. With adults, we have the choice to accept or reject any assigned tags or labels people give us.

Kids don’t have that option yet.  As I stress on the homepage, taking a child to the doctor and getting them a DSM diagnoses and some medicine is a whole lot deeper then just another doctors visit. It shapes their path from that point on. The fact that you take them there and concur with the doctor, just serves to reinforce to the child that the whole issue is in fact true.

I am not saying nobody should take a child to the doctor. What I am saying is that before doing so, do your homework, and find out if the problem you re having with them actually warrants a formal diagnoses. If it does then be supportive and honest with your child in overcoming it with the least amount of fanfare possible.

Social Worker - 20+ years. Experienced with mental and behavioral health as well as alternative education, juvenile justice, addictions treatment also. Currently working with agencies and insurers on changing the way all the systems in these work, using my methods and model of treatments for all the above. We have a horrible system in place our success rates in treatment are 20 -35% and we pay doctors to keep us sick. We also have a problem with drug companies paying doctors to write for dangerous meds to even kids, all in the name of $.. I plan on changing that and in the meantime have been aggressively working at using this site as a platform to offer coaching, counseling and many other services in several languages..oh, and services that actually work! There's a new concept.. I use models I have developed and used with success rates more like 75-85%. Only programs I personally put together and ran in my 20 years in field... Please join the incredible group of followers here as very exciting things are happening. We currently have followers in 60 countries. Most of all, I promise to never let you leave my watch still suffering. My goal has always been to educate, dial in the least restrictive, least expensive , most successful and timely treatment possible. I want everyone to know that our country is a pharmaceutical playground and there ARE cures for things like cancer, liver disease, parkinsons and many more..as a matter of fact they are being cured ( not symptoms treated forever) but actually cured of diseases in many countries who don't allow drug companies to dictate laws.. Money is the only reason we are not using the same healthy and safe natural remedies that God put on this planet. Am I saying that our healthcare system is aware of cures but watches millions die slow painful deaths all in the name of money? Well, I will have to think about it - UMM- YES! I am saying that. If you have not read my homepage please do..let me tease you with a tidbit to get you there... Did you know that the USA is one of only 2 countries in entire world that even ALLOWS any drug companies to put an ad for drugs on television? Hmm. Why does the entire world protect their own, and make sure swindlers cant twist their minds an manipulate them into buying snake oil from drug companies..and why do they make legal the natural plants that heal cancer and so much more?
