Is your child troubled?
How do I know if my child is having a hard time? Ask your child to draw a picture of his/her favorite animal. Then have the child describe that animal's personality on the paper. You just had your child describe how they feel about themselves. If they wrote things like cute and cuddly, that is how they view themselves. If they wrote items like kills other animals or is mean or doesn't like the other animals to play with them, then your child just spoke volumes to you. This is a subconscious excersize called projection, which is having the child talk about themselves without realizing it. If you are concerned about some of the items that your child described themselves as, give me a call. I work with children from age 4-18 years.
