The number of situations associated with parenting and families is endless, but common conflicts can include trauma, such as domestic violence, alcohol, drug abuse, and recovery. It can be challenging to watch family members struggle, and in most cases, you may not know how to resolve the problem. Seeking support can help parents and families develop acceptance and skills to repair relationships that may seem unsalvageable.
Other parenting and family issues may include:
- Being a single parent
- Problems caused by divorced parents entering new relationships
- Fewer opportunities for parents and children to spend time together
Parenting and family issues are oftentimes intertwined. Treatment methods vary and will depend on an individual or family situation. The healing process may focus on improving communication between family members, as well as finding healthy ways of resolving a conflict.
