In today’s world, the challenges that many parents are faced with and are expected to cope with in an efficient and correct manner can at times be daunting.
Women’ s evolution in the workforce no longer binds them to the traditional role of a stay at home mother. Not only are parents simultaneously invited to perform dual roles, but they are also expected to excel as both full- time parents and professionals, thus oftentimes it seems difficult to manage their time and balance life’ s daily routines.
Even if one theoretically knows what being a ‘good parent’ entails, ideal parenting skills need practical implementational practices. This is where the expert opinion and guidance from a mental health specialist or family counselor can help parents define priorities, organize daily activities and suggest ideas on how to spend quality play- time with one’ s children creatively, without projecting them adult worries.
Parental counseling either in a group or on an individual basis is renown for its successful outcomes around the world. Counseling provides guidance and supports parents without bias or judgement. Parents are free to talk about anything of their minds, from common everyday issues to intimidating hard to deal with situations. With the expert advice of psychologists and family counselors, parents are enabled not just to share their fears, but to find solutions. Success is achieved in a co- operative environment, where parents acknowledge their loving role as care- givers who need to step back, ‘breath’ and realize that they are doing more than enough. Counseling is a safe heaven where parents and experts work together for the benefit of children.
