In our current over-scheduled, over-pressured world, families are confronting problems they have little capacity to do anything about. We can tend to cope by getting stuck in a narrow range of behaviors and responses even if they are not helpful. A child who has learned to have temper tantrums when she is angry, and her parents who have learned to punish or pamper her, are stuck in maladaptive, non-growthful environments—‘a bad play’. It’s like playing the same part in the same play on the same stage day after day. A key component in this play is often our children’s behavioral, emotional and leaning difficulties that are so disruptive or dysfunctional - all we want to do is stop it. As pare....

I do not treat young children because for many problems it is best to teach parents skills for effectively responding to their children's emotional and behavioral needs. I teach what is called Parent Effectiveness Training Skills. This involves helping parents reinforce behaviors in children they wish would occur with greater consistency. Train the parent!

Unlike adults, young children have not fully developed their ability to communicate uncomfortable feelings. Often children will act out when they feel angry, worried, or sad. I specialize in helping children with grief and trauma in a safe and understanding environment. Children express their difficult feelings through story telling, playing, and drawing. I work with the parent and the child to develop coping skills that help the child to feel happier and express their emotions in a healthier manner. I was trained to address grief and trauma after Hurricane Katrina with children in New Orleans.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Child Therapist

Janet Edgette, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Eddystone

I see children from the age of four years and up, many of whom are referred for behavioral and emotional difficulties such as frequent and long-lasting tantrums, poor emotional regulation, defiance, physical aggression toward parents or siblings, and/or high degrees of anxiety. In these situations I meet with the child and his or her parent(s), so that I can see the interactions and better discern whether this is a strictly behavioral or a developmental problem. Treatment options may include parent coaching, family counseling, individual counseling (for older kids), referral for psychological or neurological testing, and referral to a developmental pediatrician, among others.

Children are exhilarating and exhausting and we each write our own parenting manual following our trials and errors. Whatever the problem with your child- medical, developmental, learning, or behavioral - it shapes and affects your entire family. I work with families to help each member increase their mindfulness of how their actions influence the behaviors of their child. I also help parents/guardians create new ways of supporting and insuring that the needs of all family members are satisfied. I invite you to visit me at www.PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com and to allow me to join you as you write your parenting manual.
