I have extensive experience in counselling children and young people. Because children’s behaviour can change gradually, it’s often hard to judge how difficult things have become – and to pinpoint the reason for the change. We may even try to excuse negative behaviour as ‘a phase’ which they will grow out of. However, if it has become a regular pattern (one which has continued over several days or even weeks), then it is in the child’s best interest to tackle what is troubling them.
