"Just" Stress? Or is it Anxiety?
Adolescents often sleep Article Imagemore and have mood swings due to growth and changing hormones. School is often stressful which may alter a child’s mood. Children also begin to show defiance as they grow older as a way to explore and test the world.

Although many of these things are considered to be “normal”, too much of them may be more harmful than we think.

It is important to notice how these typically normal changes are effecting your child’s daily life.
  • Are they sleeping so much that they are missing meals and not spending time with friends?
  • Are they sick often enough to miss multiple days of school a month?
  • Is there mood or behavior erratic to the point where they are getting into trouble, showing poor performance at school, or seem to never be happy?
If so, then there may be something a little more than the typical developmental changes going on with your child.

YSB is here to help you understand and address these concerns:
