About Mental Health
As a parent, it's important to learn the signs and symptoms that children with mental health problems may have, so you'll know when to seek help.
  Behavior Issues
Children learn to manage their behavior and emotions by observing and imitating how their parents handle them.
  ADHD and Autism
Two well-known child development and behavior disorders are attention deficit-hyperactivity and autism.
  Kids and Anxiety
Kids today are stressed by daily life, a tough circumstance when they are trying to figure out who they are—and just as important—who they aren't.
  Kids and Tough Issues
Divorce, death, drugs, school bullies—the list of issues that you may need to help your child deal with is long.
  Kids and Confidence
Building a child's self-esteem starts at birth. If a child feels a parent's affection, confidence will develop naturally.
