“What more can I do?” you might think to yourself, as you say goodnight to your child. You leave the room and close the door behind you. You think about everything your child is going through, and feel overwhelmed and frustrated. “Why is my child struggling so much? I try so hard to help, and nothing works.”
We understand—you want the best for your child. And that includes being the best caregiver and helping your child find the resources they need when they need it. That is where we come in. If you feel stuck, frustrated, or sad watching your child struggle and do not know how to help, we can provide hope, healing, and peace in helping your child find the strength and solutions they need to succeed.
How common is it for children to need help in therapy?
Your child is not alone. Due to the pressures our children face today, it is not uncommon for children to struggle and need additional help. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported, “1 in 6 U.S. children…had a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.” So on average, in your child’s first grade class of 25 students, 4 or 5 of them may be struggling with a mental health issue. That does not account for other difficulties like adjusting to the death of a loved one, divorce or remarriage of a caregiver, school problems, developing identity, and more.
Now here is the good news.
Providing struggling children the help they need now greatly increases their success in the present, which increases their success in the future. It also means for you, as a caregiver, less time worrying and more time enjoying your relationship with your child. At SoulSpace we sincerely care for children and their welfare, and will work with you in achieving your therapy goals and helping their future stay bright.
