Behavioral and emotional development

If my son doesn’t get what he wants, he stops talking with me?

It is not healthy for a child to withdraw communication as a means of expressing disappointment or frustration. It is important to teach your child healthy ways of expressing their emotions and needs, such as talking through their feelings or finding alternative ways to resolve conflicts. It may be helpful to consult with a child therapist or counselor for guidance on how to address this behavior.
