Article excerpt

Byline: Sravanti. Sanivarapu

[INLINE:1]The mind of a child is as tender and beautiful as the petals of a flower. It is vulnerable to the most trivial insults. Hence it must be nurtured with love and affection.

It is important to understand that, and in the best interests of the child, help must be sought, when children are in psychological distress, for the wellbeing and bright future of the child.
