Your toddler wakes up a 2 am wailing and pulling on her ear.

Your 10-year-old tries to do “wheelies” on his bike. You find him sitting in the driveway clutching his arm, and it’s swelling before your eyes.

You find your 15-year-old curled up on her bed. When you ask what’s wrong, she tells you she doesn’t want “to be here anymore.”

In these instances, and so many others, it’s important to get the right help for your child.
