No parent wishes there children to have emotional or behavioral problems which require the services of a professional counselor.
Children and adolescent problems can be triggered by bullying, abuse (emotional, sexual, or physical), divorce, remarriage, blended families, the death of a loved one, mental illness in the family, drugs or alcohol, etc. These experiences can cause temper tantrums, rebellion, school problems, a very tense household environment, legal problems, etc. Since children can be uncomfortable talking with their parents, thank God there are counselors who can help.
