Being a parent can be quite stressful at times. Parents are not just supposed to look out for their children but also cater to their physical, emotional, economic, social, intellectual and moral needs and development.
People tend to assume that parenting just comes naturally, but for most it doesn’t. Having a child and understanding how to parent are two separate things. Parenting demands patience, selfless love and lots of time.
Sometimes parents are overwhelmed and unable to overcome child-related challenges and difficulties, which takes a toll on their mental health and might lead to stress, depression, anger or feeling of helplessness.
Therefore, parenting counselling can provide you with various strategies, methods and techniques to function optimally within your family unit.
Parenting counselling may address some of the following child-related concerns:
- Unmanageable sibling rivalry
- Excessive tantrums
- Defiant Behaviours
- Parent child conflicts
- Poor eating habits
- Aggressive or violent attitude
- Habits like cheating, lying and stealing
- Substance abuse
- Poor academic performance
