More than anything else, parents are concerned with their children’s health. At Body and Mind Health Partners, we provide the best in pediatric health care in Las Vegas. But sometimes pediatric health care involves more than a simple sore throat or fever, and that’s when you need the help of a skilled and experienced pediatric care specialist.
Behavior Issues with Toddlers
The toddler stage can be a fun — but frustrating — time. Kids are just starting to feel a touch of autonomy, and you may feel like the only word your toddler ever says is “no.” Many parents turn to our pediatric care specialists at this time for help and advice. It can be reassuring to know your toddler’s behavior is within the range of normal. Yet, dealing with them can still be a struggle.
If your toddler is biting or hitting others at school or daycare, if they refuse to leave in the morning or go to bed at night, if they frequently throw tantrums or cry for hours, or if they exhibit self-harming behavior such as head-banging, bring them in to our pediatric care center for a visit.
Lots can affect a toddler’s behavior, including illness, food allergies, developmental delays and more. The sooner our pediatricians identify the issue, the easier it will be to correct.
Children’s Behavior Issues
When children begin elementary school, they enter a whole new stage. Often this stage can be easier than the toddler stage, but it’s not without bumps along the way.
When children begin going to school full-time, they may encounter issues such as bullying, trouble getting along with other children, stress over homework and learning, and anxiety over being cut from a team or excluded from a group.
Whether your child is the victim or the aggressor, they may need help. Make an appointment with our priority care pediatrics specialists to talk with you and your child about what’s going on with them.
Teen Behavior Problems
In many ways, teen problems can be the hardest. That’s because teens are so close to adulthood that they may want to handle their problems on their own — without the help of parents or a pediatric care specialist.
That’s a good thing, but unfortunately, teens are often not equipped to handle the problems they or their friends are having, such as drug or alcohol abuse, issues with schoolwork or sports, or even problems related to crime such as shoplifting or assault.
Don’t wait for your teen’s problems to get better on their own. Call our pediatric care center today. Even if your teen refuses to attend an appointment, we can still help.
