Child psychology is the study of subconscious and conscious childhood development. Child psychologists observe how a child interacts with their parents, themselves, and the world, to understand their mental development. Child psychologists can help you understand the difference between normal stage development and abnormal child development.
Psychologists observe children’s progression toward the developmental milestones to ensure that they are meeting all typical milestones. Major delays in physical development may reveal other underlying developmental issues that can then be addressed early on. A Child Psychologist can help your child understand as well as learn to regulate and express their emotions in a healthy, positive way. Psychologists also help children observe and understand the world around them, make decisions, solve problems.
