Modern parenthood often feels like an obstacle course — it’s difficult enough navigating around the schedules, needs and demands of our offspring (oh, and did we mention the guilt?), let alone dealing with the more complex issues of our children’s mental, physical and emotional health. So, how do you know when counseling for children is necessary? After all, determining what is “normal” behavior is often uncharted territory for mothers and fathers, yet parents are typically the first ones to know when something is “off” in their children. Whether your child is struggling with depression or mood swings, a developmental disorder such as ADD/ADHD, or a significant change in a family’s structure like a divorce, Insights Therapy offers counseling for children of all ages.
When You’re At Your Wit’s End . . .
Counseling for children comes in many different forms. For some, play therapy promotes a positive change in a child’s thinking and sense of self-worth. Other children (typically, but not always, teenagers) benefit from more traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy. Depending on the child’s issues and challenges, family counseling may also be recommended.
If, as a parent, you find yourself too often feeling “at your wit’s end” regarding your child’s behavior, it’s time to seek professional counseling for children.
