Question: my question is about my child. He is 8 and has some emotional issues. He gets frustrated very easy and has regular breakdowns. He also has a lot of self doubt. I have tried different tools to get him to talk through his frustrations but it seems I am making no head way. I am wondering if a child therapist is now my best option to get him to work through his problems in a more positive way.

Advice to consult child therapist /Psychiatrist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for the query at HealthcareMagic.
I read your question and understand your concern.

Emotional outbursts and frustrations among children need further evaluation especially if it has been going on for long period of time. The underlying course for such frustrations need to be looked for. Commonly children exhibit such behavior in response to stressful events in life, learning difficulties,difficulty focusing, neurologic problems etc.

I recommend that you consult a child therapist,so that he/she can work together with you and your son to explore the cause for his behavior and proper management accordingly.

Hope I was able to answer your question
Please feel free to address any more concerns
