"Emotional distress can express itself in a variety of ways for children and teens. Perhaps you have noticed your child shutting down, not talking to family or friends? Maybe your child is having temperamental outbursts or acting out in ways that feel out of control? Or a mixture of these extremes? While it is heartbreaking to see your child or teen struggle, it can equally feel isolating and exposing as a parent.
