It is wrong to assume that any psychologist in Kolkata will expect you to rush for counseling each time your child shows erratic behavior! In fact, psychologists who are professionally trained know that parents can take up the role of a psychologist partially. With love, care and confidence-building measures, parents can help a child find their mental strength. Psychologists point out three crucial times when a ‘wait and watch’ policy for a child is better than rushing off to get psychological counseling. 

The first one is parents are going through a divorce. During such testing times, when the child’s only place of refuge, the home, is threatened, it is only normal for a child to feel insecure and somehow responsible for the divorce. Children coming from broken homes are almost always burdened with psychological issues later on in life. So, you have to be careful as a parent to minimize the impact of a divorce on a child’s psyche. Try to have frank, meaningful conversations with the child. If both parents are committed to helping the child during this testing phase, psychological counseling is usually not needed.

The second instance is when a child changes school. It may be due to the job transfer of a parent or other personal reasons. Changing a school, leaving behind a known setup and friends, can be monumental for a child. The new school offers challenges which the child may not be ready to handle. Moreover, there may be bullying or inferiority complexes in the mix. In such scenarios, a child will react in a bizarre manner. Regular conversations with the parents will bring forth issues that the child is worried about. When you know about the problems, try to work out solutions with the child’s opinion. 

The third instance is when a new sibling is present in the house. Children are bound to feel threatened and their parents’ love shared. They may feel neglected and sidelined even when you do your best to accommodate the elder child. In such cases, you can delegate a duty to the elder child, if the child is old enough to handle them, like massaging cream on the new baby’s limbs. When the elder child finds themselves in a position of responsibility toward the new sibling, the negative emotions dissipate quickly. You won’t need a child psychologist in Kolkata if you handle the situation in a matured way, keeping the elder child’s fears and concerns in mind.
