Parenting can be very rewarding, but it isn’t always easy. It can be especially hard if you child is experiencing emotional or mental health problems, or their behaviour is challenging and you’re not sure why or how to help.
If you are going through a tough time with your child, it’s important to look after yourself. If you are struggling, speak to your GP or consider connecting with other parents who might be experiencing similar issues.
