Childhood is a time of innocence and vulnerability. Unfortunately, many children experience traumas that can have lasting effects on their emotional and psychological well-being. These traumas can take many forms, including:

● School violence
● Bullying (including cyberbullying)
● Violence in the home
● Abuse (physical, emotional, sexual)
● Serious illness
● Fires (or other natural disasters)

It’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms that a child may exhibit after experiencing a trauma. These responses can vary depending on the child’s age and developmental stage, but some common signs include:

● More irritable
● Withdrawn
● Acting younger than their age
● Difficulties in interacting with others
● Problems or Changes in sleeping or eating patterns
● School performance

If you notice a child in your life exhibiting any of these signs, especially after experiencing a traumatic event, it’s crucial to seek professional help. Pediatric Mental Health Therapists can provide support and guidance to help the child heal and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
