Parenting is no easy feat; whether you're a first time parent or a parent of five children, parenthood is challenging, especially when you are having difficulties caregiving for the child. Sometimes parents have a difficulties with discipline; their child or children refuses to listen to them despite the potential consequences. The child or adolescent may also become overly attached with their caregivers and become fearful around others. This is a common occurrence in parent-child relationships because of the unique bond between a child and their parent. However, it is important for the child to feel safe and comfortable interacting with others for their own social development and success. Parenting is a full time job and oftentimes caregivers experience stress associated with care-taking. When parents are feeling overwhelmed they may find themselves becoming easily irritable with their child and others, disengaging from interactions with their child and others, or feeling constantly tired. These symptoms are commonly felt with caregivers because of the demanding nature of child-rearing; here at PeaceTree we can help you manage the issues that come with parenting.
