If your child prefers isolation and feels uncomfortable among people, it may be a sign of emotional disturbance. Pay attention and offer support.

Preference for Isolation

When your child comes closer to share something but hesitates, it could signal emotional distress. Create a safe space for open communication.

Unspoken Words

If your child shows little interest in activities, including meeting friends or being excited, it could indicate emotional disturbance. Observe and address their feelings.

Loss of Enthusiasm

If your child stops sharing day-to-day happenings with you, it might be a sign of emotional distress. Encourage open dialogue and offer a listening ear.

Withdrawal from Sharing

When your child avoids discussing friends, it may be an indication of emotional disturbance. Initiate gentle conversations to understand their concerns.

Lack of Talk about Friends

If your child no longer finds joy in activities they once loved, it could be a sign of emotional distress. Support them in exploring new interests and finding happiness.

Loss of Enjoyment

If your child hesitates to speak to you, especially recently, it may indicate emotional turmoil. Create a safe, non-judgmental space for them to express themselves.


If your child becomes less physically active and avoids playing outside with friends, it could be a sign of emotional distress. Encourage physical activities and seek professional guidance if needed.
