Children, however, also face issues that families may not be able to resolve.One reason is that it may be difficult for young ones to explain what they are feeling.Another is that parents may be just too busy to notice the signs.
Some of the challenges that many kids today experience include:
- Behavioral problems
- Child abuse
- Family conflict
- Grief and loss
- Identity confusion
- Low self-esteem
- Mental health disorders (ADHD, anxiety, depression,Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
- Suicidal thoughts.
When not properly addressed, such problems may be carried into the teenage years, making it doubly difficult for families to cope.
At Orange County Christian Counseling, the experienced counselors are well-equipped to delicately handle the concerns of young children.Using the latest in child-friendly, counseling techniques, children will be able to open up and share what is bothering them.
In addition to the mental and emotional concerns, the counselor will introduce the child to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.Not all children are blessed to know Him at a young age, leaving them confused about who and what to believe in as they get older.Through prayer and discussion about Jesus’ life, a stronger foundation will be set which will be of great help as the child encounters the complexities of growing up.
Sometimes children have issues that parents cannot fix on their own. Rather than risk a bigger problem down the road, it is prudent to seek professional help soon.
