The Mental Of Health Of Children Determines Their Physical Health & Overall Well-Being
If you are a parent or a guardian, you already know how bothersome it is when your children show symptoms of physical illnesses. For instance, if your kid has a headache, bad stomach, or even a slight allergy, you are very likely to panic as the guardian. You would go to every extent to make sure that the physical ailment of your kid is treated. Similarly, when your kid gets injured, you are likely to rush toward the physician and get the injury treated immediately. Fair enough! As you are the guardian of your kids, it is your responsibility to make sure that the physical health of your kids is properly looked after. And they have sound physical health.
Nevertheless, most parents lack the mental support that their kids need. Unlike their physical health, guardians rarely pay any attention to their kids’ mental health. Apparently, mental health and physical health work in sync; this means that if the first is damaged, and consequently, the second will also be damaged. Likewise, if your kids’ mental health is sound, it will play its role in boosting the overall well-being of your kids. That is why all parents must pay keen attention to the mental health of their children.
At What Age, Do Children Develop Symptoms of Mental Health Issues?
It is essential to note here that children – in general – are very likely to suffer from mental health issues after the age of 14. Last year, a global survey was conducted to see which children develop mental health symptoms at what age. The survey included 90,000 children from around the world. Based on the conclusion, it turned out that 1 in 5 children develop symptoms of depression and anxiety before the age of 15. Likewise, other kids had shown symptoms of stress and other psychological issues at the age of 18.
However, the survey further recommends that some of the symptoms – found in these kids were critical. Partly, it was because they were not treated at the early stage. Secondly, they did not have enough mental support from their parents. As a result, the symptoms of mental health decline were apparent in these kids. Furthermore, the research recommends that parents prioritize their children’s mental health as it works in sync with their physical health.
Kids Need Mental & Emotional Support
Another important finding of this survey is that children need emotional and mental support from an early age. For that, they look up to their parents and guardians.
At this point, parents should understand and prioritize their kids’ mental health. Of course, this can be possible by giving them enough time, emotional support, and taking care of them. Once parents understand that their kids’ mental and physical health work in sync, they can help their kids boost their mental health.
