TEAM ESTEEM™ FOR PARENTS
Team Esteem™ gives parents tools to make home life easier.
Parents need professional guidance and support in managing their child’s challenging behavior. Schools expect them to implement quick-fix interventions. Team Esteem™ works with parents on how to:
Manage their own emotional responses to be the best role model for their child
Determine the underlying esteem issue causing the problematic behavior
Communicate differently with the school so child feels understood and accepted
Find the appropriate words to address a child’s disruptive behavior
Take a break when angry
Team Esteem™ utilizes a non-judgmental approach that focuses on practical, helpful strategies that benefit children and simplify family life. Team Esteem also provides parents with sensory-related techniques, speech and language tips to effectively advocate for their child, and methods for navigating the Board of Education.
