Parenting Counselling Professionals You Can Rely On
Parenting, though rewarding, may still be one of the most difficult and time-consuming aspects of a person’s life. In addition to tending to an infant or child’s daily needs, parents are also generally responsible for helping each of their children develop life skills, social skills, and appropriate behaviours while accounting for the unique personality of each child.
Why Might Parents Need Counselling?
Parents have a major impact on their children, and as such, can work to create a positive environment for their children. However, parenting is hard, and receiving professional help can provide parents with the support they need to help their children overcome challenges and flourish.
Counselling can also help parents understand their own emotional needs and how their behaviour is affecting their children. It can provide parents with the strategies and tools they need to have a healthy and positive relationship with their children.
Common Signs you as a Parent, Need Help.
Parenthood is difficult to navigate and receiving professional help can help get you on the right path.
Common signs that you are a parent who could benefit from parental counselling include:
- Your child refusing to go to school, constantly getting into trouble at school, or other issues to do with routine.
- Your teenage children seem to be drifting, getting in with the ‘wrong crowd’ or experimenting with drugs and alcohol.
- Your child no longer listens to you, respects you or behaves abusively towards you.
- Feeling as though you are stuck in a ‘power struggle’ with your children.
- Your child is displaying symptoms of mental illness.
- You are finding it difficult to connect with or understand your children.
- There are other child developmental or behavioural concerns that affect your child and the family.
Healthy vs Toxic Parental Relationships
We’re all human. No parent has a perfect relationship with their children, but a good relationship with respect, love and understanding at its core is achievable for all.
Toxic parental relationships often involve control, manipulation and enmeshment at their core.
Healthy parental relationships however have an understanding that each person in a family is unique and able to make their own decisions.
Although children can be guided and helped, ultimately, they are their own person. When this understanding is reached, the relationship will flourish, as both sides feel as though their needs are being met. Boundaries, understanding and acceptance can help build these relationships and parental counselling can help with that journey.
