Parenting is Hard

Parenting is hard. And right now it’s so hard and stressful you want to give up. Being a parent is hard for many reasons, but one is that it can surface unresolved issues, traumas, and inner wounds from the past. These are things you have ignored, forgotten or maybe thought you had already dealt with. It’s difficult because you have to rise above, be the bigger person and build a bridge to a child you don’t even like some days. It might not make sense, but doing your own therapy will help you develop closer connections with your kids. It is like putting your own oxygen mask on first so that you are in the place to help someone else. Through therapy, you put your feet on more solid ground and stop riding the emotional roller coaster with your child. Your child may continue to do what they do, but your experience of it will change dramatically.

It’s Never Too Late to Improve Your Parenting

It’s never too late to improve upon the way you relate to your child. When you care for yourself, it allows your child to work on him or herself. Don’t miss this opportunity to improve things for yourself and your family.
