"Better to build children than repair adults"
KW Legacy Ranch at a Glance
Because it’s Still Not Too Late
“Is my child really that bad? Other people would think I’m overreacting if they knew I was looking into this. Sometimes my child can still be so wonderful and nice, do they really need a program? I know kids who are much worse than mine. We still have good days; it’s only every once in a while that something bad happens.”
Have you heard yourself saying some of these things? If you have, you’re not alone. Every parent is going to question this painful process and rightfully so. Treatment is a tough decision. And because it’s such a difficult decision, parents often find themselves postponing and waiting until something drastic or even life-threatening occurs. Unfortunately, delaying treatment when it is required can have serious consequences. Children may become too entrenched in their habits to respond as effectively as they would have had treatment been sought earlier. Also a more intensive form of treatment or a longer-term option may be necessary if treatment is delayed inappropriately.
Get Off the Emotional Roller Coaster
Typically when it comes to our children, past performance will be one of the best predictors of future performance. Think about the events that have brought you to this point. What has taken place that has caused you to come to KW Legacy Ranch’s website? Many parents ask us how they will know if their family and their child are at that point that they need a program like KW Legacy Ranch. One of the best guides to help you answer that question is to visualize what life will be like in one week, one month, one year or longer if you don’t do anything. What will life look like if you continue on the same path you’re on today? Be honest with yourself. Can you realistically expect different results in the future if you’re doing the same things today? If you believe things will just get better on their own, then you probably don’t need treatment. However, if you think things will remain the same or get worse or if you have already seen poor behaviors escalate over time, then the obvious answer is that something needs to happen. Hope for change doesn’t bring about change. We can’t continue doing the same things over and over and expect different outcomes.
