Does my child need counseling?
Parenting is one of the most difficult and emotionally draining jobs one can undertake. One particular challenge for parents is having to understand the emotional and intellectual needs of their child. This is not an easy task, especially when some children exhibit more difficult behaviors than others. Even the difference in the way siblings respond can be great. All of this leaves parents guessing what is serious and what is not.
Thriveworks Counseling in Raleigh, NC has child counselors who are trained to assess behavioral challenges and to know when they warrant a closer look. Each child is an individual and will cope with difficult situations, such as divorce, trauma, parental addictions, or mental health issues, differently. Raleigh, NC counselors take individual differences into consideration when assessing a new client.
Some behaviors that may cause concern are:
- Significant changes to sleep, either an increase or decrease
- Noticeable and prolonged shifts in mood
- Frequent fighting with peers
- Excessive shyness or anxiety in new situations
- Bedwetting or nervous habits, such as nail-biting
