The difficulties that children and adolescents experience can be seen all around us, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, tic disorder, developmental delay, depression, anxiety disorder, competition between siblings and parent-child communication issues. It is better to resolve such problems at an early age so that it does not disturb children’s growth, because these disorders can lead to greater problems later.
