Children and Adolescents Counseling

Child trauma occurs more than you think.

Cognitive milestones represent important steps forward in a child's development. Throughout human history, babies were often thought of as simple, passive beings. Prior to the 20th-century, children were often seen simply as miniature versions of adults. It wasn't until psychologists like Jean Piaget proposed that children actually think differently than adults do and that people began to view childhood and adolescence as a unique period of growth and development.

"Teachers and researchers in positive psychology are natural allies. At its core, education is about nurturing strengths, about growth and learning. Furthermore, psychological and social well-being are key concerns for teachers and other educators and for people working in the field of positive psychology” (Shankland & Rosset, 2017).

This quote illustrates the natural pairing of psychology and education which has persisted for as long as psychology has been a field of study. More recently, positive psychologists have advocated for positive psychology in schools alongside traditional psychology. This movement can be called positive education.

The effects of bullying or cyberbullying can be devastating, leaving you feeling helpless, humiliated, angry, depressed, or even suicidal. And technology means that bullying is no longer limited to schoolyards or street corners. Cyberbullying can occur anywhere, even at home, via smartphones, emails, texts, and social media, 24 hours a day, with potentially hundreds of people involved. But no type of bullying should ever be tolerated. These tips can help you protect yourself or your child—at school and online—and deal with the growing problem of bullying and cyberbullying.

It’s one thing if you don’t like the person your teen is dating, but it’s quite another to realize that your child is in an unhealthy relationship. Being involved in an unhealthy relationship can take a serious toll on your teen’s mental and physical health, social life and education. 

Young adults who experience violence in a relationship are more likely to drink heavily, smoke marijuana and develop depression or experience suicidal tendencies.

This isn’t a situation limited to young women; teen boys can also fall prey to an unhealthy—or even abusive—relationship. So whether you have a son or a daughter, it’s important to monitor your teen’s relationships.

Consistency is one of the most important and essential concepts when it comes to effective parenting. In terms of parenting, consistency may be tied to how you connect with your child emotionally or how your family operates with getting things done. On the emotional side, consistency means purposely choosing how you are going to engage with or respond to your child, and not varying with that choice over time.

 

Does your child cry when you cry? Does she want to give a dollar to every homeless man with a cardboard sign? Or do you have the kid who noticed neither the tears nor the homeless person? The first child may have a deep natural capacity for empathy. The second child, not so much. Empathy is at the root of what it means to be human, experts say, and it’s at the core of all good relationships — personal and professional. Some children may naturally have more of it than others. But not to worry, empathy — the ability to understand and share the feelings of another — is something that experts say can be enhanced, learned, and practiced.
