Not all children grow from infancy through their adolescent years without experiencing some bumps along the way. While every child is unique and special, sometimes they encounter emotions, feelings or behavior that cause problems in their lives and the lives of those around them. Families often worry when their child or teenager has difficulty coping with things, feels sad, can't sleep, gets involved with drug, or can't get along with family or friends.
The AACAP developed Facts for Families to provide concise and up-to-date information on issues that affect children, teenagers, and their families. This important information is available as a public service, and is currently available in both English and Spanish.
