It is normal to worry about your child’s well-being and want to protect them from being hurt or upset. However, you cannot protect them from every up and down in life. Oftentimes these bumps in the road are short-lived and your child learns to adjust and move on. This is not always the case, though, and sometimes these events can affect your child’s daily function. When they are having a difficult time coping or adapting, counseling can be a beneficial option. With professional guidance and support, they can learn to cope.

There is no definitive line that determines when your child needs counseling, and when they do not. Each child is different, but follow your instincts. If you feel something is not right or are worried about their well-being, talking to a counselor can be helpful.
