How do I get my child to be more careful. He seems really accident-prone compared to other kids.
3. Karolyn Merriman said on 6/25/16 - 01:49PM
To Debbie, yes, this is working! Thank you.

To Morgan, A few possibilities come to mind. He might be nearsighted or have some other visual impairment, so getting his eyes tested would be a good idea. If not a vision problem, then it seems he may be distracted or tuning out. If he is distracted, he may need testing for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity. If he Disorder) If he is tuning out, he may be upset about something he can't talk about, or under too much stress to focus on the present. I hope one of these suggestions proves helpful to get to the bottom of your son's apparent clumsiness!

Hi Karolyn, I am currently separated after 31 years of a destructive marriage and husband with narcissistic personality (hidden), and recent infidelity disclosures. We tried counsel with a specialist in this area out your way, but counsel was so off, and I felt like I had no advocate. It is impossible to have a reasonable conversation privately about all this. Now he wants to date with agreement of pastor and counselor. Most counsel I have received is alarmed at this, when there is no repair to our relationship privately, only a good act in counseling . What would you say?
