Child and Adolescent Issues

Image courtesy of imagerymajestic / FreeDigitalPhotos.netAs part of growing up, children and adolescents face a variety of problems. Additionally, critical parenting, family conflicts, bullying, peer pressure etc. can exacerbate these age-related situations. At a young age, individuals do not have adequate coping skills to deal with so many problems and this may make the young ones vulnerable to developing non-adaptive thinking and behavior patterns. Faulty thought patterns often originate early in life and responding constructively to them can save years of distress and disability. It is vital to establish productive patterns early on to lead a positive and fulfilling life. Unlike adults who have the ability to seek assistance on their own, teens and preteens mostly rely on parents, teachers and other caregivers to recognize their suffering and get them the treatment they need.

In an age where crimes against children and substance abuse are increasing significantly, it is more important than ever to identify sudden change in behavior patterns, mood, energy level, etc. You cannot be everywhere for your child, but you can teach them skills to deal effectively with the world they face today and make smart choices in difficult situations. If you have a child or adolescent in your life, it is important to learn what warning signs to look for and what to do if you spot these signs. You can also seek the help of a professional who can help you understand the reason behind your child’s behavior pattern and resolve issues like low self-esteem, anger, anxiety and depression. 

We all need help sometimes to embrace changes. And when you do, you need an empathetic listener who understands you and helps you discover your path. Please browse through the Frequently Asked Questions section for more information or contact me for a consultation.
