Ask Your Own Mental Health Question

Hello and thank you for reaching out to Just Answer with your concerns about this child. The reason this child acts so differently in two different settings is because she can. She has learned that at home there she will not have a consequence for her behavior, but at school she will. She has learned that at home her behavior will get her attention but at school it would bring her embarrassment, etc. She has learned that at home her behavior will be tolerated but at her school it would not She may also be angry and hurt at home and trying to let everyone know in unhealthy ways but at school she may not have these same feelings. Children often reflect the dysfunction of the adults and if they are going through a difficult time they are probably not able to give her the structure, role modeling, nurturing and discipline she needs to develop in healthy ways. Is this helpful? Linda D., LMSW, CASAC

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
