Psychiatrists say that as many as one in 10 American children has a serious emotional disorder, and younger and younger children are being diagnosed with mental illnesses.

Have you been told that your child has an emotional problem or mental illness? If so, did you seek a doctor's advice yourself because of something you observed in your child's behavior, or did day care or school personnel recommend that you seek help for your child?
