River View Christian Academy understands that parents want to send a young girl to a safe, monitored environment where she receives personal care, and individual support that help heal emotional and mental disorders–whether brought on by trauma, foster care, adoption or family genetics.
And while your young teen girl enrolls our year-round boarding school for improving her academic/life skills, River View Christian Academy also helps girl students struggling with mood swings improve their mental and physical health.
Toddlers and young children often appear “moody” and may throw tantrums as they learn to regulate their emotions. While they’re generally a normal part of emotional development, mood swings in children can also be a sign of an underlying mental health disorder, learning disability, or even a physical ailment.
As kids get older, mood swings continue to be a normal part of their development. By the time they enter the preteen years, fluctuations in mood are primarily driven by hormonal changes. These shifts in mood tend to peak during adolescence and gradually stabilize by young adulthood.
What a Girl Eats…
A young teen who is eating a diet that’s nutritionally inadequate or not getting enough to eat may experience mood changes in response to fluctuating blood sugar levels and malnourishment.
Digestive disorders that affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, such as Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), have also been associated with mood swings. These conditions have also been linked to specific mental health conditions, such as depression.
How a Girl Sleeps…
A young girl’s mood can also be heavily influenced by the amount and quality of sleep she gets. A teen who is sleep-deprived (especially when chronic) may experience intense mood fluctuations as well as other psychiatric symptoms.
