How do I build a support system for a child recently diagnosed with a behavioral disorder?

Now that we have the Internet, it makes it really easy for us to find out what supports are out there. So I would say to the parents, go online and find out, put your child's disorder into a search engine and see what's in your community. Then get out and start talking to people. Talk to the counselor at your school, and she might let you know that there's some support groups or some other groups. You can just start a group if that's the best way to go. You'll find out that you're not alone.

Also, I would say going to a parenting class would be good. Common Sense Parenting has parenting classes all over the place. Start there and you might find that there's someone else out there who understands you perfectly and has been in your shoes and can help you get through what you're going through.
