Through the physical examination, the doctor talks to both you and your child about development and health. They also ask general wellness questions like, “How are you feeling?” and “Do you feel like that most days?”
When certain issues such as misbehavior or depression manifest, your pediatrician may take a more active role as counselor, and a more in-depth conversation about these issues may occur.
Your pediatrician works to establish a therapeutic relationship with your child built on trust and honesty. That encourages them to naturally consider their doctor a safe person to come to when something difficult arises in their life.
