Author to Offer Attachment Parenting Consultation for Parents of Children Ages 2-18 with Behavioral, Learning and Emotional Struggles

Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 4, 2010

Laurie A. Couture, author of Instead of Medicating and Punishing, offers attachment-focused phone, email and face-to-face consultation for parents and professionals who work with children and families. Laurie works with parents and professionals to help them understand three key points:

Behavioral acting-out, emotional instability and problems with school performance are alarm signals that alert us that something is distressing and hurting the child.

Contrary to popular belief, it is natural for adolescents to stay emotionally close and connected to their parents.

Children of all ages from infancy through late adolescence need specific parenting and educational environments in order to feel happy, thrive, cooperate and reach their full potentials.

Laurie will guide parents and professionals to:

Discover principles to help parents heal their relationships with their children, regardless of their age,

Identify the surprising parenting and learning conditions that children’s brains need for mental, emotional and behavioral health and for optimal learning,

Understand why behavior modification, rewards and punishments, diagnoses and medication do not heal children or make them happy, cooperative, compassionate people,

Differentiate between the popular therapies and special education services that can actually worsen the behavior and distress of children and which treatments lead to lasting solutions, and

Learn respectful, refreshing, natural discipline principles that parents can apply to facilitate family closeness and cooperation, respectful communication and empathy for others.

Laurie A. Couture appears in the recently released film documentary, The War on Kids, which was featured on The Colbert Report and MSNBCs Dr. Nancy. With years of experience as a mental health counselor, social worker and parenting trainer, Laurie has inside knowledge of how the educational and mental health systems keep families dependent upon family-eroding institutions, services and psychiatric drugs. Laurie has helped hundreds of children and families find relief, hope and closer relationships.

As a mom of a 16 year old boy, Laurie works compassionately with a diversity of families, including families who have had involvement by child protective services. Laurie offers family-preserving expertise to adoptive and kinship families. She works respectfully with families of all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as homeschooling and attachment-parenting families.
