Early Childhood Mental Health

Young children can also be affected by stress due to changes, such as the birth of a sibling, the loss of a significant person, parental disputes, negative environmental factors, learning difficulties, or lack of structure or routines, which can manifest itself in challenging behaviors. Therefore, positive interactions between caregiver and child are essential to help children build trusting relationships (attachment) and learn to appropriately express and manage their emotions.
