Dealing with a mental disorder can take a great deal of strain on the family. This can especially be stressful for the family. Children of parents with mental illness can often grow up with a lot that they have to deal with, and this is why they should have the support that they need. However, it is not always easy to find.

It can be difficult for a child to take responsibility for some of these problems on their own. They often have to play the role of the parent. Many parents have serious problems where they are not able to cope. Depression, for example can cause people to basically sleep all day and it makes children feel as if they are neglected and abandoned.

Kids, who have to deal with this, will also find that they become depressed and anxious themselves. A lot of children don't know what to do and are fearful that they are going to be separated from their parents. Fear creeps in when parents become angry due to a disorder like this. They may often lose their temper and become withdrawn.

It can particularly create a lot of fear in their lives when they are exposed to abuse. This can happen in certain situations, depending on the disorder that the parent is suffering from. Of course, a child does not realize that this is part of the disorder, and they will grow up in fear. They may even think that they still have to be responsible in cooking for the parent, for example.

They may not get a lot of support from the other parent, who can also be suffering. There are spouses who don't take responsibility for the situation. They may find that it is better to allow someone who is depressed to sleep all day. However, this does not help a child feel as if they are loved. Someone with this sort of problem needs to seek counseling.

Children can also become abusive, both verbally and physically themselves. This is something that they adopt from the parent. Sometimes it happens because they are frustrated and they will take it out on others in the school. They will start to bully others and become more aggressive. This is something for teachers to be aware of.

One should think before separating the child from the family because this can create a lot of problems for them later on in life. They will feel as if they were abandoned. They may feel as if it were their fault. One has to make this clear in the beginning. If they have to go somewhere else, the family has to make this the transition as smooth as possible for them.

Psychotherapy will be helpful at this stage of a child's life. It means that they don't have to battle later on in life when they are married and have children of their own. During this time, a therapist will be able to listen to child as they express themselves. This can be so helpful, especially since most kids feel that nobody is able to listen to them. A therapist can also refer a child to a play therapist who can work with them in a more creative fashion. Sometimes they need to express themselves in this way in order to let out all of the emotions.
