Child to parent violence is one of the least discussed forms of abuse in families today. Breaking the Cycle Consulting works with families to help both parents and children overcome the issue of violence in the home and develop skills to manage emotions, and help build loving, supportive and long-lasting relationships with others. Unlike other programs or therapy, Breaking the Cycle is specifically focused on providing support to parents of angry, aggressive or violent children. Ours is a judgment-free zone, and our only goal is to provide tools to more effectively manage your relationship with your child, and to keep you, your child and other family members safe.

Perhaps you would categorize your child as “troubled,” “angry,” “sulky,” or even “aggressive,” but maybe not violent. Some signs of a child in danger of becoming violent or one who is already violent would be: bullying, yelling, cursing, being verbally abusive, hitting, shoving, punching, pinching, biting, throwing objects, being cruel to younger children or animals, slamming doors, flipping furniture, grabbing or other unwanted physical touching of others, shoplifting or other petty crimes, drug use or abuse, talking back to parents or other authority figures, or any combination of the above.

This program is right for you if your child or teen appears to be angry, aggressive or physically, verbally or emotionally abusive of others, or acts inappropriately in public or private. Parenting can be difficult even in the best of circumstances. However, the parent of an angry child who is acting out to hurt others is in a particularly precarious position. These parents need support more than ever, as often they judge themselves harshly for the behavior of their child. Breaking the Cycle programs are designed to be a soft place to land for the parents of aggressive children and teens, a place where you can get the support, information and resources you need, not only to care for your child, but for yourself as well.
