Why is my child acting out?

Mother of two Giedre likens her family dynamic to that of Bart and Lisa Simpson – her daughter is very well mannered and compliant, while her son often gets physical and takes things out on his sister.

When the difficult behaviour continued beyond his terrible twos, Giedre was worried it would only get worse.

From there, she reached out to a clinical psychologist to understand why he was acting out and how they could turn his behaviour around.
