gerous circumstances, a good
therapist will often ask the par-
ents to stay out of it," says Dr.
Colman.
The duration of therapy varies
a great deal based on frequency
of sessions, the age of the child
and the severity of the problem.
"The parents should ask what
type of changes should be ex-
pected in what period of time. If
there is an acute problem within
the child, more frequent sessions
each week can often resolve the
problem more quickly.
"On the other hand, if the prob-
lem is environmental, less fre-
quent sessions (once per week)
over a longer period usually work
better. Problematic situations in
the child's life need to be resolved
before therapy can do its job," she
says.
Finally, it's very important for
the child to like the therapist, al-
though he may not like him all
the time, says Dr. Colman. If the
child does not feel comfortable
within the first few sessions, it
may be time to try another ther-
apist.
Likewise, if the parents feel
uncomfortable with the thera-
pist's approach, therapy may not
work because the parents don't
follow through. "Parents have to
feel comfortable about therapy,"
says Dr. Colman, "before adding
one more person into their child's
world." ❑

Tuned Into
Television

Television can be an enriching
part of a child's development —
if it's used wisely. Parents should
be aware of and control what a
child watches.
Limit the amount of viewing
time (preschoolers shouldn't
watch more than an hour a day),
and encourage children to dis-
cuss what they see. ❑

Coaching The
Parent Coaches

Parent volunteers are vital to
youth sports programs, but it's
important to make it an enrich-
ing experience.
Parent coaches should em-
phasize participation over corn-
petition, keep practice sessions
fun (and short), be generous with
praise and encourage players —
and parents — to have fun. ❑
