Anger Management and ADHD
Son refuses to go to therapy
My 10 yr old son started going to therapy last fall, it was a desaster, the therapist was very unprofessional-after two visits we were told she was no longer with the group and we had been assigned to the head of the dept. He is very nice. My son went to a few appointments seemed to be doing ok, but once the dr. started getting to the point where he was asking my son to really talk about his feelings and deal with issues he refussed to go or will agree to go but as we get closer to the door of the office, he gets upset and does not want to go in. The dr. has said he can not make him come. He has said if we do not come to the office we should do volunteer work for that a animal shelter or some other place that my son can feel like he is helping and doing good. My son has anxiety and anger issues. Has anyone had this situation? Anyone have advise on how to deal with this?
