Diandra Barnes LCSW
You know your kid is struggling, but so are you. She’s not a bad kid, but she wears you out. The school thinks she needs discipline and testing, but you feel like maybe she just needs help adjusting to life. Every time she gets in trouble at school by fighting or disrespecting adults, you wonder what you did wrong and how can you ever fix what’s broken before it’s too late. You’re losing your patience, but you also want to yell at everyone to just leave her alone; she’s still so little and she’s been through so much. You’re really trying. I hear you and I want to help.
