Eli was having trouble at school finding ways to release his anger. His mom was receiving phone calls from the school every day about her son’s behavior issues. Desperate to find help, she discovered Real Help for Real Life.
Through this free program, Eli and his mom worked with a counselor to realize that Eli didn’t have enough structure in his daily life. So, Eli and his mom started reinforcing the need for a consistent bedtime and following through with promises. The counselor taught Eli special techniques so he could better sense and judge his body movements and actions. He told Eli to pick his favorite technique to use in school so that he could release his anger without getting into trouble.
By the end of counseling, Eli was named to the A/B honor roll. His teachers reported that he was doing great in class, and when he was redirected, Eli was able to correct his behavior almost instantly.
