Online Child and Adolescent Counseling for Parents

Parenting adolescents can be a struggle. Here’s how counseling gives you the tools to restore balance to your home.

Child and Adolescent Counseling for Parents

It’s no secret: parenting is hard. But sometimes, parenting adolescents is so hard that it feels like every day is an uphill battle. You may feel like you’ve tried everything and your child’s behaviour isn’t changing – or it’s only getting worse. You may feel like a total failure as a parent; at a loss as to what to do.

If this sounds familiar, know that you’re not alone. Plenty of parents experience exactly what you’re going through, and come out on the other side of it with a strong, intact family complete with healthy adult children.

Therapy can help you get there, too.

These behaviors may be normal aspects of adolescence, or they could be symptoms of more serious conditions like oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) or conduct disorder (CD). They may have to do with some combination of genetic and environmental factors, and are usually related to disciplinary issues as well as parenting and family dynamics.

Bringing Balance Back to Your Household

Your situation may feel out of control now, but the good news is, a qualified therapist can help you get a handle on it. Child and adolescent counseling can help parents by teaching skills for effectively communicating and setting boundaries with your children in a way that makes everyone happier.

Setting the right tone for your household allows your children to feel safer and manage their frustrations in a healthy way. Your therapist can work with you to recommend protocols for encouraging healthy behavior without the need for severe discipline. Some examples of this may be:

Praising your child for their positive attributes

Appropriately assigning chores and responsibilities

Structuring your household so that it's a more calming space

Find Relief with Family Therapy

Therapy can give you a place to express your frustration and talk freely about your situation. It gives you the tools to manage your thoughts and actions in a way that promotes a healthy, functional and peaceful home.

Counseling takes some work, but your family is so worth it. When you learn to interact with each other more successfully, it helps you feel better, your child feels better, and your entire household feel happier as a result.

Change the way your family functions. Talk to a counselor today.
