Toddler with problems cant get help!

by Mrs.Hazzard-

I have two children and one on the way but my oldest child is almost three and no one in the area will help me because they say he is to young but he is very defiant very aggressive at times. There are some days that are good but we have more bad then good anymore to the point that I don't know what to do and he is now getting more violent towards my 1 year old and myself. Can anyone PLEASE help.

Hi Mrs Hazzard.

I'm so sorry you are having such a hard time. I'm sure its very concerning that you are seeing this aggression in your son. I also know from my clients that fear about your other child's safety may make you feel powerless and scared.

Let me suggest that you contact the play therapy association. They maintain a list of therapists that work with young children in your area.

You may also want to contact, early childhood centers Pre-K's kindergarten or your local community mental health department to see what they suggest via some form of therapy.

Contact all the therapists in your area who say they work with children. If they advise you that they cannot help you, ask them for a referral.

I'm constantly frustrated when I hear that parents can't find help for their young children in the form of therapy and I am sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. Almost three is definitely old enough for therapy!
