Parenting can be challenging even at the best of times! However significant parenting issues may arise as a result of feeling overwhelmed or unsupported in handling the physical, mental, emotional or financial demands of caring for children. These issues can vary according to the child’s temperament and stage of development and may be exacerbated by the presence of multiple stressors within the family, including illnesses, injuries or behavioural problems, sibling rivalry, excessive technology use, limited financial resources, losses or bereavement or unexpected changes in the family’s circumstances. Parenting issues can impair connection and communication between the parent and child and lead to long term relational issues if not addressed.
