It’s really important to get help early and fast.
If you’re facing extreme behaviors a safety plan for your child, yourself, and your other children is critical. Therapists, clinicians, and others who may be working with your child can assist with creating this. This is a useful checklist to get you started.
Post- Adoption Resources (If you adopted out of foster care)
Post Adoption Social Worker
Mecklenburg County mobile crisis unit: 704-566-3410
Police: 911 Please note: In my experience, the police are unlikely to assist if your child is under the age of 16 unless the incident is extremely serious. Property damage, even physical violence by a young child is unlikely to be addressed by the police
