Based on your answers to the quiz, your child appears to experience a normal amount of sadness or depression.
How did we come to that conclusion?
Everyone – even kids as young as 3 years old – experiences some levels of sadness. This quiz asked you some basic screening questions in order to gain a better understanding of your child’s current emotional functioning.
This is not a diagnostic tool, but it provides a basic way to help parents decide whether or not to schedule a follow-up appointment with a mental health professional to fully assess their young child. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through clinical evaluation with a professional.
At this point, you might still be wondering if there is something troubling your child. The only way to know for sure is to get your child evaluated by a mental health professional.
The silver lining for most mental health problems is that they are VERY treatable – especially when caught at a young age. Individual therapy allows the young child to:
- Process any difficult or traumatic events that may be contributing to the child’s difficulties, allowing them to move past these events in a healthy way
- Learn coping skills and problem-solving techniques to address their specific challenges
- To repair or improve the family and peer relationships in their life so that they create a positive support system to help them overcome their difficulties
- Allow the child or teenager to live up to their full potential and stop anxiety from holding them back from the wonderful future that they deserve.
Considering a mental health evaluation for your child can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be. The child therapists at Modern Parenting Solutions have many years of experience helping kids overcome lots of difficulties, and they can help your child too.
