Children & adolescents suffering from stresses may become highly aggressive, have drop in school performance, get addicted to harmful substances or show signs of depression or even suicidal tendencies. This leads to  anger, arguments, constant fights and domestic disharmony. Emotional ill-health of children and domestic disharmony naturally unsettles the parents. They may become sad, frustrated, angry, violent or even terrorized by their children’s unexplained aggression or acute depression. Some homes may actually resemble virtual battlefields! So domestic disharmony can be both, a cause as well as an effect of emotional ill-health of all the family members.
