The Emerging need for Child Counsellors and Child Therapists in Toronto


Reality Check

With the variety of emotional and social challenges faced by children in this generation, the response of the powers that be has been to expand the pool of professional  Child Counsellors and Child Therapists  in Toronto to address issues like aggression, anxiety, social awkwardness, confidence issues, ADHD, ODD, etc.    Currently, research suggests that while children are getting smarter and smarter (higher IQ), emotional intelligence (EQ)is declining as children opt for  alternative sources of stimulation such as video games , social media, screen time.  These new trends have and continue to minimize the opportunities for real and genuine human engagement where we have traditionally learned about ourselves and each other.

Call for Help

As a result these professionals have answered the call to help this generation and to help children manage the inevitable difficulties that lay before them in the years to come.

Emerging Trends

Much has changed in the last 30 years. For example, parenting has new limitations forcing parents to seek alternative methods of discipline.  The surge of financial wealth and prosperity has caused the breakdown of families driving up feelings of loneliness and alienation of both children and their parents.  New tactics of childhood bullying has emerged with rise of online and   text bullying.  Greater freedom of expression through music, media, and movies –has given very young children access to information they may or may not be ready for.    All of this has taken a toll on the emotional and social well-being of our children. While some may say “society is just offering choice to this generation – it has the capacity to endanger the fragile minds of young people –who now have countless ways to author their own demise.
