This is a question about child psychology. In your experience can children sense when their parent is significantly bothered by something even if they're not entirely open about it? Do they have a so called "sixth sense" if you will? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Welcome to JustAnswers. My name is***** little bit about me… I am a psychologist and have been practicing for the last five years in private practice and in a community setting. I work with families and people of all ages. I especially work with children. I am also a registered life coach and solution-focused therapist. I am passionate about helping people and finding solutions, not growing problems. I believe that the mind is a very powerful tool and can be used to achieve any outcome in life-positive thoughts lead to a positive life. I am here to help you with your question.

Ask Your Own Mental Health Question

Thank you for your question. it seems like you have some concerns about your child and a situation you have going on. So in my experience children are very perceptive and they really take a lot of their cues from people's (especially their parents') behavior (not so much what they say). So they often notice when things are bothering you or on your mind. I believe that they watch very closely in order to make sense of the world (that sometimes doesn't make sense).

I hope this answers your question- but please let me know if you want to chat about the specifics a bit more and about helping your child through any difficulties.

Wishing you all the best!

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!!
