Always keep in mind, NO program is successful unless there is FULL family participation. It can be mother, father, grandparents, etc. Someone must be totally committed! Parents are given homework assignments, as well as, the clients. Family involvement is paramount! Also, have PATIENCE! It took a time period for your child to reach this point. Well, it will definitely take some time to redirect the child in a positive direction!
