When you notice emotional or behavioral issues developing in your child, it is hard to know where to turn to get answers to your questions. It can be emotionally taxing when you are the target of your child’s anger, defiance, or rebellion. It can be scary and heart-breaking to see your child fall victim to depression, anxiety, and drug abuse—or see them engage in self-harm.
