This type of therapy is more helpful for older kids and especially for those who appreciate the value of reading and writing.
Many kids, for instance, have a tendency to question authority and require extra convincing. Literary therapy could work for them if they wish to see substantial evidence that the cure or treatment you’re advocating for is indeed encouraged by “experts” in the field.
These kids may be too young to understand the complexities involved with emotional mood swings, but they’re more than aware of the fact that information found in articles, books, and other research texts hold significant weight.
Literary therapy would also be of greater assistance to you when you look for the best way to help your child cope with and eventually get over his emotional mood swings.
Last but not the least, let’s not forget the most inexpensive and yet one of the most effective treatments at all: communication.
Communication prevents any gap from forming between you and your child. Constant communication ensures that you know everything going on with your child and understanding his situation better. Constant communication allows your child to trust you more and feel secure in your love and affection.
Communicate with your doctor. Inform him of your child’s progress and never hesitate to ask for advice.
Communicate with your child’s teachers. Help them understand your child’s mood swings so they, too, can help him get over it.
Communicate with your mutual loved ones because the more love and affection your child receives, the less likely he’ll suffer from mood swings.
