Is the family in an uproar half the time & walking on egg shells?
Are you concerned about your child’s behaviour and not sure how to manage it?
Is your family being affected by drugs or alcohol?
Has there been loss or bereavement?
Are you concerned about mental health or emotional wellbeing?
Who’s in charge and is the responsibility shared fairly?
Each family unit has its own personal dynamics and domestic demands. It can be very worrying and difficult to discuss or address concerns with your children or other family members, without feelings of guilt or obligation clouding the situation.
