Children and teens have a lot going on in their lives even with nothing more than the usual stressors and problems. Just like adults, they can use someone to talk to so that they develop healthy coping strategies and emotional resilience.
Some kids and teens have extra stressors to cope with, like divorce, illness, bullying, disabilities, or traumatic events. Some kids and teens develop anxiety disorders, panic attacks, or depression. They need help.
Problems during child and teen years can become
the precursors to lifelong mental health issues.
Some parents are reluctant to get counseling for their children or teens. They might hope that things get better on their own. Kids and teens might not ask for counseling. They might be embarrassed, blame themselves, hope that they get better without help, or talk to friends. They might develop unhealthy ways to cope.
