“Is my child normal?”
It’s a question just about all parents ask themselves. However, the deeper question is, how do you know if your child needs counseling?
Taking your child to counseling doesn’t mean that there is something inherently wrong with them. There are many reasons why a child may benefit from it. Whatever the reason, counseling will help them develop skills to understand and process their emotions, and will ultimately help them become well-adjusted adults.
If they are struggling with something emotionally, it might present as them acting out or withdrawing. Experiences like divorce, moving, being bullied or experiencing a traumatic event can cause intense emotions in a child.
