My teen draws very scary art images of people, her doctors a psychologist and a psychiatrist have both told her it’s not a problem. I disagree. This article and others articles similar to it is going to help me speak with them about why they are telling her this.
Cindy Swartz, Before you dispute your child therapist and the experience professionals findings. They have evaluated your teenage drawing disturbing dark images and has determined it is not a cry for help… Nothing is wrong with the pictures. correct? Yet, you as a parent felt different this is understandable. They may be correct. I can only say keep a daily log will help these professionals see a pattern, the art images that is disturbing to you and mood and behavior of your child. And most importantly, talk to your child, by asking in a nonjudgmental way about the paintings. If you can get your teen to trust you they will reveal their innermost thoughts that maybe overlook hidden in those pictures.

I drew dark images as a child as it was connected with death which was of great curiosity as a teen no psychiatric help needed Even by a renowned neuropsychiatric I saw for epilepsy that I was diagnosed with in my thirties after having seizures
I agree with the latter of your post, but my opinion is that something is wrong in the first place for a teenager to have that in their mind to express in a drawing. I agree with the latter to be open and not show concern to him or her for them to gain your trust.
as a teenager who likes to draw and paint dark things i disagree with this, i just enjoy it, i find it fun to try and scare myself with my drawings!
My 14 year old son has started drawing images of what I believe is himself stabbing another person. He was excluded from school last year for stabbing a younger girl with a compass. He shows no remorse for his actions. I am worried to let him out with other children younger then him. I often watch him talking to himself and he will be imitating stabbing someone with a long sword made from a tree branch. When I ask who is talking to he says no one. Often when you hear him taking you would almost believe someone is in the room. When he was younger he tried to harm his older brother and one of his pets but I didn’t worry about this. Could this be an early sign of mental health
Speak to his primary doctor.
I hope you have your teenage son in therapy for as long as needed, meaning years of psychotherapy. Also a psychological evaluation can guide the treatment.
I’m a 13 years old girl who paints and draws in a dark topic, and I know that parents are rlly concerned abt these drawings of teens. That’s the same for me, my mum kept telling me that I should not draw these kind and talked to me if I had some issues. She said that the drawings were disturbing and it would destroy her, my dad and my self’s image.
Just like this article I am trying to express my emotions into my drawings. But sometimes I just feel like drawing these kind, because that’s just the style how I wanna draw. This is just my personal opinion by my experience how I felt, but telling teens to not draw in a way that they want to express will just pressure and stress them even more.
My step daughter is 17 came to stay with us after we found out she tried to committ suicide…I really didnt know the story however she admitted to me she is depressed alot and only smiles and laughs to acvomadate others. She also told me she cuts herself…I told my husband and it caused a fight he said her mother said she is doing for attention smh…just today I found disturbing drawings and letters about her being depressed. I am very concerned but she isnt my daughter and her father isnt concerned and says I am exaggerating….
Hai, my daughter is Type 1diabetic, 13 years. She is a good artist but recently since a year her drawings are disturbing as it’s with bloods and knives with a character in black and grey. I tried to know what’s in her mind regarding particular drawing but she told she wanted to draw so she drew. I know she is having anxiety issues as she gets stressed out very fast due to which her bg’s (blood sugar)are also high during those times.. I even asked her if she has some issues that’s troubling her we can go to doctor for help but she is reluctant. Any doctors here who can help me what I can do …
