Parenting is one of the most challenging tasks in an individual’s life. It has become increasingly clear by the plethora of research conducted that the way we were parented impacts deeply on our development at all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually. Knowing this, many parents wish to parent as consciously as possible.

Unfortunately, school does not teach us this vital life skill, and there is so much conflicting information from our families, communities, media and books. It can be hard to find what we need, and hard to trust that we have what we need.

Some individuals can struggle with parenting as they may have a child that does not ‘fit’ the mainstream parenting methods. They may have a challenge such as a learning disability, language delays, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder.

The child may have an intellectual disability or a specific syndrome such  as Down’s Syndrome. They may be just sensitive and feel very intensely. They may experience anxiety, anger or sadness more than others, or have challenges expressing themselves appropriately. Children with additional needs can have challenging behaviour that is not easy to understand or predict.

Parenting can be exhausting, and many of us are white-knuckling, hoping for the best, or are riding on a roller coaster from crisis to crisis.

If you relate to this experience you may benefit from parenting support.
