Are you at your wits end with the day to day struggles of being a parent?
Do you disagree with your partner on a major parenting issue?
Do you care for a child with special needs?
Parenting comes with emotional peaks and valleys. One day you are beaming with pride because your son or daughter learned a new skill. Another day is full of anguish and frustration. While parents’ actions, words, and attitude greatly influence children, there are limits to parents’ power. Children are complex beings within their unique temperaments, personalities, challenges, developmental stages and needs. Parents must learn the delicate dances of encouraging without pushing, disciplining without overpowering, and giving maximum attention to a child without losing a sense of self.
Most challenges come and go quickly. When your toddler hollers, you take a deep breath, count to 10 and return to life as usual; however, if your screaming toddler wakes up the baby or sets your migraine into high gear, taking a deep breath and counting to 10 is simply not enough. Even minor conflicts can be handled more easily when time is taken to make a plan and think through what might work best for your child.
You want to be a loving, understanding parent but sometimes your frustration level is too high to stay calm with your child. Let the understanding counselors at RM3C support you as you begin to manage the stresses of everyday life and break a cycle of negative feelings and behaviors.
Maybe your teenager won’t respond to your simple requests. The trained counselors at RM3C are here to support you in navigating new and more effective parenting strategies. Perhaps your own parents were not great parenting role models, or your own life has left you emotionally drained. Maybe you and your partner have different views on issues of religion, spanking, education, or other child rearing decisions. You can’t see a way for compromise. RM3C can guide you through these difficult times.
Caring for a special needs child has special challenges. Asking for emotional help to meet the challenges is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of resiliency. Seeing your child struggle day after day with tasks that come easily to most people has emotional ramifications. We can help you come to terms with a diagnosis and teach you tools to enjoy the special gifts your child possesses.
We will listen to your struggles and determine whether family counseling, individual counseling, or couples counseling makes the most sense to help alleviate the stresses of parenting. We can even come into the home and see how adjusting dynamics or schedules might improve your life. Small changes in habits can have profound and deep impact on your stress level and enjoyment.
Maybe taking time to talk with a counselor feels unreasonable. You are already over-burdened with your children’s activities, and work, and maintaining the household; however, taking the time to invest in your emotional well-being is just as important as your other commitments. Consider giving your children and yourself the gift of increased emotional strength and new parenting skills. Call the counselors at RMC3 today for a free consultation and recommendations for your specific needs.
