Children often go under considered with regard to mental health. They can’t articulate how they feel, and adults get so wrapped up in their own problems that they don’t pay attention.
Not only does this have a lifelong affect on children, it is also the main reason that they could grow up to be dysfunctional or dangerous adults.
Children are vulnerable and constantly in a formative phase. They are easily scared and confused, and they rely on adults to notice these feelings...and help them cope.
Take a minute every day to stop and make a quick mental note about any behavior or signs that might point to a child who is in mental distress. Offer help.
