There is a growing problem among our children that makes taking care of them challenging. The issue is dominance – when children think it is their job to call the shots and tell adults what to do and how to take care of them. Children who have risen to this alpha position can be full of resistance and opposition for those who try and lead them. They can be easily frustrated and filled with anxiety. They steadfastly see themselves as the boss and don’t understand when others try to tell them what to do as if they were in charge. The issue at hand for is not one of strength as it is often misperceived, but of desperation. There is much we can do to restore our rightful place in their lives and have them rest in our care.
