Behavior Concerns

How do you know when your child's behavior should be discussed with your child's Primary Care Physician (PCP)? Akron Children's Hospital has a short video about when you might need to raise your concerns to the child's pediatrician. The video addresses warning signs, common concerns, and when/why children may be referred for specialist treatment.

Remember, control over one's emotions is a developmental process. Just like some children are slower to walk, some children need extra time to learn impulse control, anger management and patience. Working with a professional such as counselor or a psychologist can give your child the "emotional tutoring" they need to learn to manage their behavior.

What if I don't agree with my PCP's recommendation?

Remember, you can always get a second opinion from a different PCP if you don't agree with your PCP's assessment or if he/she won't refer you to a specialist.
