Children’s Mental Health and Trusting Relationships
Do you think it’s important for children to have relationships with their grandparents, even if those relationships are unhealthy?
Family is one of the most important parts of our lives. Family is there for you when you need them, whether it’s to lend an ear or to offer a helping hand. For those taking the first steps in mental health care for disorders like depression, anxiety, and trauma, family is often the best support system. This central fact can change because of one thing, however: children are trusting.
Children absorb what their family members teach them, regardless of whether or not those lessons are healthy. While this may not always lead to something like outpatient therapy, it’s important to know when a little course correction is needed. If you aren’t sure of the signs, Lightfully Behavioral Health has worked with Parents Magazine to create an article that covers not only the signs that will tell you whether or not your child has been negatively influenced by family members, but also how to approach these potential issues. If you find that your child might need help, look into Lightfully’s mental health services.
