When should a teenager go to counseling?
If you are thinking about whether counseling could be helpful to your child, here are some questions to ask yourself:
Does your child ever feel really sad, frustrated, or lonely?
Does your child feel especially angry, annoyed, or out-of-control?
Do your child feel very anxious, worried, or guilty sometimes?
Are these feelings having a bad effect on your child life ? Are they making your child schoolwork and their relationships with family and friends difficult?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then it may be a good idea for you to talk with a therapist (also known as a counselor). A therapist is an adult who has special training to help people sort through their different feelings and problems.
