Kids go through a lot of changes and deal with a lot of stress in their own worlds. Normal pre-teen- teenager moodiness or rolling eyes are to be expected. But if your child seems unusually stressed, down or angry or losing or gaining weight it might be something more than growing pains.
Are you worried about your child and feel like you’re not sure how to help him or her? Sometimes talking with a professional adult outside of your family is a safe place for your child to explore feelings and thoughts he or she may be having.
I work with children, teens and young adults with their parents to improve communication and have a greater understanding of events that have occurred. Once you know how to help your child, you will feel less anxiety and be able to support him or her in a more conscious and educated way.
Your child may need to process the things that have happened and are still happening right now in their lives. They deal with pressure from peers, bullies, parents, grades, college, self-esteem, looks (body image), extra curricular activities, divorce, separation, loss of a parent and more.
If you’re noticing that your child seems angry, fresh, mopey, sad, isolating, hurting him or herself or eating disordered its time to consider therapy to help him or her get back on a positive path.
