Maria brought her son Daniel to The Parenting Center at age four. Daniel was acting out at school, hitting and biting. After a few visits at The Parenting Center, the therapist uncovered that Daniel’s father was abusive and this was the way Daniel learned to communicate with others. After many sessions with Daniel hitting and yelling at his male therapist, he started to trust him. Daniel is learning to use his words and is working on soft touches with his family, teachers, and classmates. Maria has found help, and is now taking parenting classes at The Parenting Center.
Maria and Daniel continue to heal each day and have a bond stronger than ever. Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon story. There are more reported instances of child abuse and maltreatment in Tarrant County than anywhere else in Texas. We’re here to help, but we need your help too.
