Are you worried that your child might not be as excited about the many things kids his/her age swoon over?
Is your child trying to adjust to a drastic transition in your lives? Is your child a past victim of trauma or abuse?
Is your child rebelling against your entire family? Do you wish for a way you could become more in-tune with your child’s behavioral patterns in the bid to get closer to them?
As a parent, coming to terms with the fact that your child does not exhibit the best of behaviors at school and or at home can be hard. You may begin to make certain excuses for your child; maybe she had a bad day at school, maybe he is acting out because he got kicked off the football team etc. anything to make you feel your child’s behavior is totally normal. But, what happens when your child’s behavior becomes consistently unacceptable, and when you try to reach out to him/her, he becomes even more distant. A lot of parents deal with these occurrences in different ways; while some do nothing, blaming the sudden and consistent outbursts on teenage hormones, others take the proactive step and seek different, professional opinions.
It is more common than you think
It is understood if you feel overwhelmed with the need to decipher the emotional and psychological turmoil your child seems to be feeling, but we want you to know that this is a very common occurrence amongst children especially those who have been through recent changes in life. While some parents will be quick to brush this occurrence as mere tantrums, we at Sunrise Counseling Service believe that there is actually a lot a parent can do in this period to gain an even deeper understanding of what their child might be going through. Staying informed and vigilant by consistent communication with one of our many qualified therapists can definitely provide parents with information, fresh insights that can be applied towards improving the lives of their children and the overall condition of the family.
