Our lives revolve around our children. We worry about them every day. We work hard to provide them a comfortable safe haven. Despite our best efforts, we sometimes need help. If you are concerned that your child may have some learning or attention problems, or needs an educational plan to meet their unique needs, psychological and neuropsychological testing is a good idea. If you’re concerned about your child’s behavior including episodes of sadness, excessive anger or acting out, decreased interest in favorite activities, mood swings, or sudden changes in appetite, counseling is a good option.
We all know that teenagers are hard wired to butt heads with their parents. Our teens face more issues than ever before. Beyond acne and puberty, they struggle with issues of self-esteem and body image. Some engage in risky behaviors with little sense of consequence. They enjoy the advantages and the dangers of the technology our generation has created. How do we help them be all that they want to be? When you have done all that you can, where do you turn for help?
