Children are very receptive, even at a young age. They can easily pick up when there are problems at home between mom and dad. If they believe there are relationship issues between their parents, it is not uncommon for a child to act out through undesirable behaviours. They might refuse to do their homework, not go to bed on time, or even talk back. In school, they could become disruptive in the classroom and act in inappropriate ways, like talking over the teacher or biting or hitting other students for no reason.
This is just one example of a situation where your child could require counselling with a professional therapist. There are other times too, where a child could be exhibiting certain signs that indicate a bigger problem is brewing internally and they are struggling with how to resolve and address it.
Keep in mind every child is different and the signs they exhibit can vary. As a parent, if you are not sure if your child needs help or what to do, you can benefit from discussing their behavior with counsellor to obtain a professional opinion.
