Stable mental health is very much important for pre-teen & teenage development. These days preteen who are under 9-11 years old, their mental health as important as others.

A child’s mental health includes both their physical and their mental health, physical health adds all the things how well a child develops, how strong and quickly they can recover from an incident.

There is a phobia called “nomophobia” (fear of being without a phone) smart phone addiction, also known as internet addiction disorder. So, we must minimize the screen timing.

Check with your teen that how their day was and how they are feeling and how things are going, listen to their words and observe that is there any changes in their behaviours. Carefully asking the child to share everything with them, what problem they are facing in day-to-day life, they might avoid the question but in a moderate level keep asking about their feelings.

Childhood & teenage are the time when child go outside meet new people, share different emotions & experience emotional ups & down. It is very normal for a teenage to develop a mental health problem. It is not something to be ashamed of, do not blame & shame that child because it would be more difficult for that child to grow or recover.
