Is there any age in which counseling is not effective for a child? When do you know if your child needs to talk with a counselor? Are there signs that you should be watching for to determine if your child needs a little extra emotional help? I struggled with all of these things for a while, but finally made the call to have my six year old son begin seeing a counselor. Having divorced his dad, I knew that his life was turned upside down. Having a neutral party for him to talk to has really helped him adjust to the change. Our blog is meant to help other families going through similar situations recover.
