Recognizing Behavioral Issues

October 26, 2017

 

As a parent it can be tough to gauge when your child is just energetic, or “going through a phase,” or when their behavior might be indicative of a larger issue. If you have concerns, it is always best to ask, since if there is an underlying issue the sooner it can be addressed the better. Here are some things to watch for and be mindful of if you’re wondering whether or not your child has behavioral issues.

 

  • Decline in grades regardless of efforts

  • Constant worry/anxiety

  • Refusal to take part in seemingly normal activities

  • Recurring nightmares

  • Persistent disobedience

  • Frequent emotional outbursts

  • Dramatic mood swings

  • Drastic appetite change (refusal to eat, constant overeating, etc.)

  • Abrupt changes in relationships


If you have any questions, please contact either office, and we will be happy to advise you on the best course of action.
