Childhood is an important phase in every person’s life. What happens during childhood directly impacts the quality of adult life. Several different aspects, such as the child’s relationship with their parents and the environment in which they grow affect the child’s mental health. All these external factors including the relationships with family and peers directly correspond to the emotional, social, and cognitive development and growth of the kid. Recently the world has seen an exponential rise in the mental health issues awareness among parents related to their children and adolescents. However, the severity of the impact that a mental issue can have on a child’s growth and development is still severely underestimated.
In most cases, parents don’t even know what their child is going through and how everyday situations worsen the kid’s conditions. In this day and age, there is too much pressure to excel. Any number of social situations can cause a child’s mental problems. The most common causes of mental problems in the kid constitute social and academic pressure and an unhealthy home environment.
Situations such as challenging life experiences such as dysfunctional families, poverty, bullying, violence, assault can worsen the kid’s mental health. Not only do these issues affect the kid in the long run but also make them pull back from society. All children exhibit different forms of challenging and defiant behavior, so it can get difficult to understand if it’s normal for them or do they need professional help. One of the clear clues is an exhibition of abnormal behavior that is not age-appropriate. You should also be concerned if your child seems to be in some pain or discomfort.
If your child shows signs of discomfort or their behavior has become erratic, you must opt for child therapy that will help you understand the cause of the problem and help you find a solution. Child therapy can help the child learn how to regulate their thoughts and emotions, and better understand their feelings.


It can get challenging to differentiate between normal behavior and erratic behavior. Here are a few behaviors that might mean your child needs therapy.
  • If your child has problems in several areas such as academics, social behavior, family relationships, etc.
  • When your child starts feeling bad about himself/herself and becomes less confident and effective.
  • If your child is worrying about the future too much, he/she might be suffering from anxiety.
  • When your child starts expressing feelings of hopelessness and becomes unmotivated.
  • If there is a sudden and erratic change in their personality or starts disliking things they used to enjoy.
  • If you observe a significant change in their sleeping and eating habits.
  • When your child starts acting out or starts engaging in negative behavior frequently.
  • Starts showing the signs of discomfort and depicts self-destructing behavior such as hair-pulling and skin-picking.
  • If there are any incidents of self-harms, you should immediately consult a specialist.
  • Starts talking negatively about themselves and shows signs of self-pity.
  • It is a red signal if the child starts talking about suicide explicitly.
