Family life can be difficult and challenging. At times your child can find it hard coping with life’s everyday stresses and experience feelings of loneliness, anxiety and fear. During these times their feelings can start to get them down and they can become upset, argumentative, or at odds with themselves and other people.

Dealing with your child’s emotional health and wellbeing can be a difficult task to manage and at times you might need help.

If you are worried about your child’s emotional health and wellbeing use the parents and carers section to find advice and helpful information about finding ways to cope with your child’s feelings and behaviour/mental health problems.
