When a child is struggling, the whole family is affected. At the Child Mind Institute, we want to help you make good decisions for your kids and navigate parenting challenges. We explore the concerns and challenges we hear about most from parents and provide expert guidance on how to respond in the most effective way. And if you have a child who needs support, we offer resources that can help you get the best care for that child and the best outcome for your family.

With 1 in 5 children struggling, we all know a child or family affected. We invite you to start open conversations that empower families, schools, and communities to transform children’s lives.

Bullying is frequently noted as an example of disrespectful and aggressive behavior. The majority of bullying and harmful behavior happens in order to get attention, praise, or social status from by-standers, peers, or even the victim.

CONCERNS, SYMTOMS, & DISORDERS

Children and adolescents can struggle from various psychological, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive issues. These struggles are often part of growing up. However, if you’re concerned with your child’s behavior, it may be a good idea to talk to a clinical child or adolescent psychologist. They can help see if these changes in behavior are normal for your child, or if they would benefit from expert guidance.
