Observing the behavior of our children is a natural part of good parenting. We love our children, and tracking their behavior, their moods, and their general disposition is one way that we protect them.

Adolescents and younger children will always have their moments – both the good and the bad. However, if you notice significant changes in mood or behavior, your child may be struggling with an emotional or mental health problem that needs professional attention. These behaviors can come in many forms, some more severe than others, but it is important to note if you observe:

  • Sadness or anger
  • Anxiety
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Attention problems or hyperactivity
  • Learning difficulties
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Truancy, running away
  • Poor social and interpersonal skills
  • Attachment to risky peers
  • Resistant or ‘acting out’ behavior

If you notice these or similar behaviors in your child, CALL US NOW. Addressing these concerns early can make an enormous difference in your child’s long-term health and well-being.
