Challenging Child


You’re Not The Cause, But You Can Be The Solution Eight-Year-Old Jessica Wasn’t An Easy Child. A bossy, fussy girl with only a few friends, she frustrated and alienated even the people who loved her most. She threw tantrums over seemingly minor issues-“”These socks hurt my feet!”” or “”This juice tastes yucky. I won’t drink it!”” She became angry when her parents tried to leave her with a babysitter, often throwing herself down on the ground and screaming furiously. At bedtime, she demanded that her parents stay with her. Her teachers reported that she seemed overwhelmed, unable to concentrate.
