When Your Kid Is Having a Tough Time of It

  1. As a parent, it is up to you to help your kid to receive the help that they need as you are their legal guardian and are legally responsible for your kid’s safety. If you have realized there is a problem either through your observation or your kid telling you that they are having a hard time functioning it is best to get them that help.
  2. If as a parent you have asked your kid to get the help, and in some cases, as was the case in the above situation, you have gone as far into the process as what occurred there, the least you can do is follow through on your end of the deal instead of making excuses as to why it is impossible to make that happen. The reality is that any sort of therapeutic help is going to cost money even if it is a weekly copay that goes on endlessly or the remainder of whatever your insurance will not cover of the care given.
