Is my child hiding his true feelings to protect me?

Is your child hiding their true feelings from you? You are not alone in asking this question- many parents ask the exact same thing.

Dr. Joshua Essery, Director of Psychological Service at Clarity Child Guidance Center shares insight into why your child might hide what they are really feeling from you, including a desire to protect you or their own fears surrounding these emotions. He also helps answer what parents can do to help their child and when expert support is needed.
