Therapeutic Parenting Resources

The following links are great resources for parenting exceptionally tough kids. Though I do not specifically endorse any of these people, programs, or methods, I do believe they all have good ideas. None of them, however, have all the right answers that work for everyone.

The most successful cases I know of don’t just follow one approach. They research everything and use the best that everyone is offering.

All the websites listed below have a wealth of information on them. Many have some great free training videos available, too.
