Our children’s behavior isn’t the core reason parenting is stressful, although it often feels that way. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations with our children that we can’t have anticipated or have experience with managing such as learning difficulties, loss, tantrums, opposition, or depression. We’re stressed because we love our children deeply and are determined to make their lives good. For most of us parenting is the start to a great adventure, but the road map is not in our language.
With adequate support and skill development, we can begin to enjoy our children so much more thoroughly. We can worry less and play more. We can be freer to anticipate difficulties, and to solve them as they come along. There are many opportunities and ways to tackle parenting. Mindly therapists have the tools and can teach you how to use them.
