For children, it is normal for them to fight their emotions and bear with behavioral problems and challenges. But when parents fail to handle the situations of their children and escalate the disorders, these children grow up to be emotionally challenged citizens of the society, teaching and preaching the same to their children. This ongoing cycle is recurring while such individuals who struggle with such symptoms become parents and are unable to cope with their behavior of their children, producing mentally ill and distorted adults.
For the same reason, parents need to avoid unnecessary treatment and costs in both time and money. All they need to understand is to help their children to inculcate and develop positive mental health. The National FFCMH 30th Annual Conference talks about empowering children, youth and the families through their workshops and speakers.
When should you consult a good child mental health professional?
As for children, you must monitor their feelings and behaviors and watch for something called as symptoms that might make you think that your children are not developing the right type of emotions for themselves. The type of symptom depends on the age of the child and what is wrong with them.
Behavior issues: look out for explosive or dangerous behavior of your child that might result in deterioration of his attitude.
Emotional issues: If your child looks anxious, sad or irritable then it is time that you seek help.
