counseling with your child
Has anyone ever taken their child to counseling, for behavior related issues or whatever?
I've been thru counseling on my own so I know it helps, but I'm just wondering how much kids "open up" to a total stranger - I'd like for her to talk without me around. She has said some things recently that make me wonder what is going on.
She's very well behaved so that is not the issue. She's only 5 and the things she said recently have really disturbed me (lots of sadness). It could be from trauma of my past relationships or just the general weirdness of her life (I'm a single parent) but I'm just curious to hear from other parents who have had to take their kids to a counselor.
