If you think parenting is hard, you are not alone.
Reality is that parenting is tricky, exhausting and thankless a lot of the time. The joy of parenting is lost when our children are behaving poorly. The truth is, most parents feel guilt when we don't respond to our child's behaviors in the "right way". If you have ever screamed, given in or let your child make the decisions for the family, you are not alone. But if you are stuck in one of these common parenting patterns, and your child's behavior shows it, then therapy can help. Don't let your family life suffer, and don't be ashamed to ask for help.
If your common parenting response is:
To give in so your child will stop whining or demanding To scream to get your child to listen To avoid dealing with misbehaviors for fear of upsetting your child To do everything for your child only to feel stressed out and resentful To worry a lot about your child not living up to their potential To constantly remind your child of what they need to do To get angry and feel like your child needs more discipline
