How can I talk with my depressed child about improving their grades or working more diligently on improving themselves?
How much does a parent’s anxiousness and depression affect a child?
Our son has mental illness, he lives with us, he’s 30, we give him his meds everyday, he has no job, no friends, no motivation, sleeps all day and paces all night. What’s the next step for us?
I have caught my daughter throwing up in the shower several times. I don’t know how to broach this with her. I am terrified that she has bulimia.
My daughter is 13, was bullied at school and has become extremely disengaged. She is almost always alone in her room. After weeks of working with the school on a plan to ease her back in, she agreed to try going back to school for 2.5 hours. After I dropped her off, and made sure she would be okay, and she had a teacher supporting her, she ran away from school and called me. I wasn’t angry. We talked and she knows we are there for her. But I’m broken. What are some steps that we can take to help her heal so she can return to school and other activities she used to enjoy?
My 15 year old son has had anxiety since he was 10 years old. He refused to attend school in 4th grade. What began as a few days off here and there grew to days, weeks, months, until we couldn’t get him out of the car. We tried working with the school psychologist, we even tried moving schools, but it didn’t work. He has started taking medication, which has helped a little. He spends most of his time in his room, barely interacts with the family and will not go to any family outings. I’m completely burned out.
I caught my 11 year old self-harming and I don’t know what to do.
I’m concerned my 3-year-old may have anxiety, but her pediatrician keeps brushing it off as her “just being three.” How do I help her anyway?
We caught our 16 yr old son vaping and smoking pot. He says it’s no big deal and doesn’t know why we are so upset. What do we do?
I have an eight year old son that has difficulty sitting still, difficult to calm, and over the past 6 months increased agitation and aggression. I’m not sure if the divorce has an impact on his behavior since it’s been three years now. I need to find a way to decrease the aggression and anger before it gets too out of control.
