Children and adolescents don't come with owners manuals. Attitude problems, lack of respect, mood swings, anger, avoidant behavior, decrease in school performance, hanging with the "wrong crowd", change in appearance or music, all can be normal developmental phases. However, some teens and their parents can get stuck or develop communication patterns that are unhealthy. Moreover, some of the above symptoms can be caused by more serious mental health conditions that require accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Help is only a phone call away. While starting counseling is a major step, it is a sign of strength, not weakness. Today, more individuals, couples and families are entering counseling, not only to treat illnesses but improve their quality of life.
