Your Child's Mental Health
Do you ever wonder: "Is there something wrong with my child?" Maybe your child acts out and you contemplate whether these are symptoms of ADHD or signs of Bipolar Disorder in children.
A recent study indicates that many parents can tell if their child has a mental illness. However, unlike cold symptoms or a case of the measles, a child's mental health problem may not be as easy to recognize. Here are the signs of mental health disorders in children that signal it's time for professional help.
Your child's teacher can also be a resource in determining if your child has a psychological disorder or learning disability.
Sharing your observations with your child's pediatrician or family doctor is an important first step in getting a diagnosis and appropriate treatment for children with mental health needs.
We'll be exploring that more on tonight's HealthyPlace TV show.

Speaking of "wearing," do you have a child who argues about everything and anything? Dr. Steven Richfield, "The Parent Coach," says it can drive you and other family members absolutely bonkers. Luckily, he has a solution for dealing with the argumentative child.
Following Up on Healthy vs. Unhealthy Relationships
In last week's newsletter, we defined healthy relationships and unhealthy relationships. Afterwards, Amber wrote in to say:
"My problem is abusive relationships. I date a guy and think finally I found a nice one and a month or two later, the screaming, yelling and shoving starts. What's wrong with me?"
