Children are not small adults. They do not respond to their emotions and thoughts in the same way an adult may. Developmentally children are very concrete in which they see situations as black or white, good or bad, and right or wrong. It can be very confusing as a parent to try to understand the unique challenges your children may face. All children will act out because their needs are not being met at that particular time and they don’t have the words or concepts to describe how they are feeling. Let one of our Child Therapy Specialists help you to help your child to develop coping strategies, be successful at school and prevent small problems from becoming larger ones in the future. We can help determine if your child’s behavior is developmentally and age appropriate.
