As this article states, Conduct Disorder (CD) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) are not the most common mental health issues that kids face, but they are common enough that many, many parents and caregivers are dealing with them! Though this article offers some scary warnings, there is help available.
Through work with horses, we can help kids/teens become more willing to accept adult direction and demonstrate that there is information that adults have that is of value. Horses have a powerful ability to teach about personal boundaries. We can work on age appropriate coping and anger management skills, ’cause let’s face it, horses will not want to be with us if we get angry or treat them badly.
We would be happy to meet with you, show you around the ranch, introduce you to our wonderful horses, learn more about the challenges you and your family are dealing with and share a bit about how we may be able to help. Call us today to schedule a visit.
