Parent-Child Relations

Parenting can be a gratifying and rewarding experience; it can also be frustrating and difficult. Many parents will experience periods of conflict with their children, which is expected and a part of typical development. However, if the conflict you have with your child is prolonged and causing distress and discord in the parent-child or family relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. Friction in a parent-child relationship can be triggered by many things, including loss, family upheaval, illness, or trauma.The goodness-of-fit of a specific parenting style to a child's personality also impacts the quality of parent-child relations. Through family therapy or parent counseling, parents can learn the tools and strategies they need to respond skillfully to their child's behavior and emotional needs while getting the support they need as parents to build a secure and consistent family-child relationship.
