When your child is struggling with behavioral and emotional issues, it’s their way of communicating that something is not right and they need help.
Your child’s mental wellness is affected by their experience at home, family, school and friends, or when unresolved issues are still upsetting for them.
Children can have hard time identifying how they are feeling and how to express themselves appropriately, especially when they are frustrated and under stress. In these situations they tend to act out or shut down.
Feeling distressed can get difficult for you as a parent when your child’s issues persist and you don’t know how to help them anymore. It becomes stressful for everyone!
