Child and Teen Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Conway
As parents, we want the best for our children. When our children struggle, we struggle. When our children are in pain, we are in pain.
Individuals who aren’t parents (or persons who have never had a child going through difficult times) often don’t know how difficult (and how complicated) being a good parent can be. Situations are not always black and white and often it feels like the majority of the time we are landing within the grey spectrum. People are learning that the challenges children face today are nothing like the childhood challenges we grew up with only a few years ago.
It’s not simply a bully pushed your child on the playground, or they bad mouthed a teacher in school. Modern society has changed the game for what it means to grow up. Your child is constantly exposed to thousands of opinions, images, videos, and songs that impact their behavior and their mental health. Learning how to prepare for challenges and how to deal with them is a new ball game then the previous generation.
New Issues Include:
- The high levels of stress and academic pressure
- Bullying, now in person and online
- An uncertain future
- Early exposure to drugs and alcohol
- Early exposure to sexual content and issues
- Exposure to unobtainable physical “standards”
- Societal peer pressure
- Trend acceptance
- and much more
If you’re on this page, any number of reasons might have brought you here. You could be here because of behavioral or discipline issues with your child.
