Young children are full of wonder, energy and love for their family, friends and for all kinds of play! At the same time, for many kids, changes in family, academic or peer struggles and/or changes in our communities can cause big emotions to become difficult for kids and parents to manage.
You may notice that your once carefree child is starting to show signs of anxiety or changes in their mood or behavior like hitting, yelling, screaming or crying. No two kids are alike in how they deal with life’s stressors. Children show big emotions often as this is their way of releasing tension; this is how they communicate.
If you need support in helping your child learn different ways to express themselves and communicate with family or friends, online therapy may be a great fit for you and your family.
Online therapy is a great mode of treatment for younger kids, especially in times like these. They can be comfortable in their room, which is helpful for them to feel more safe and secure. Things are constantly changing in today’s world and “normal” routine disruption can cause changes in a child’s mood/behavior.
You don’t have to figure things out on your own…a therapist who specializes in the mental health development of young children like me can help.
