When you can not do without a child psychologist

In many European countries, classes with a psychologist since childhood have been brought into the category of normal and sometimes even mandatory.

Unfortunately, not all countries have formed their clear attitude towards these specialists, and most importantly, not all people are decided even for the first consultation.

In childhood, a psychologist’s consultation can change the baby’s life for the better, because the specialist knows how to direct the child’s thoughts in the right direction. Why do you need a child psychologist at all?

Special periods in the life of a child requiring a specialist intervention

The period of adaptation. This may be before entering kindergarten or school. In any case, the new environment for the baby is new stresses that may not be visible to parents, but you need to know about them. A specialist will help to cope with an increased load on the psyche of the child and increase the communicative abilities of the baby.

Family problems. All small quarrels, as well as large family events (divorce, loss of a loved one, birth of a new baby) lead to the fact that the emotional state of the child suffers. This is not always visible, since the baby does not always show his experiences. A specialist will help to accept changes in the family, and possibly smooth the quarrel between parents.

Assessment of the readiness of a preschooler for school. It is very desirable to contact a specialist to enter school, since he will reveal the special inclinations of the child who should develop, and also give recommendations on the type of curriculum, but there are many of them now. It is noted that those parents who nevertheless decided to take the child to a child psychologist during this period, later rejoice at the positive estimates of their children.


Perhaps this is the most common problem that children’s psychologists face. Symptoms of neurosis can be a variety of. The most noticeable symptoms are hysterics and aggressive condition, but they are not always found. Stuttering or obsessive movements, which were not previously observed, may also be a symptom of neurosis. Finally, the obsessive fears and the unwillingness to remain alone in the room is also one of the obvious signs of neurosis.

To cope with the neurosis, it is necessary to identify the cause, and this is only possible for a child psychologist. Neurosis can develop from almost everything, even a frightening cartoon can develop a persistent fantasy in the thoughts of a child, from which he himself is no longer able to get rid of. Even the desire of parents to instill their child as much knowledge as possible can cause neurosis, and a qualified psychologist will definitely solve this problem.
