Resources for Children:

A child is the greatest gift we are given and with that precious child comes challenges as they grow. Different cycles of life provide obstacles that we may not be equipped to effectively handle. We may find we need help to facilitate appropriate discussions and learn additional parenting skills, as children start to explore their self-identity and develop into teenagers. Through participating in active counseling, families can become closer and actions that once seemed to be a challenge become learning experiences. Below are great parenting tips for common situations that may be encountered with children:

o Responding to poor grades

o Getting the respect, you deserve

o Tug-of-war over chores

o When kids lie

o Handling anger toward a new sibling

           

Handling Anger:

“Anger is a basic human emotion that is experienced by all people. Typically triggered by emotional hurt, anger is usually experienced as an unpleasant feeling that occurs when we think we have been injured, mistreated, opposed in our long-held views, or when we are faced with obstacles that keep us from attaining personal goals.”  - Information provided by Mentalhelp.net

Our therapists work with clients to help identify sources, gain control and learn to let go of anger. If you have been holding on to anger toward a family member, co-worker, supervisor or a lifelong grudge it may be time to let go.

Below are some resources:

o Admit your anger

o Handle anger with care

Marriage/Couples:

Rough patches occur in each relationship, whether you’ve been together one or twenty-five years. Throughout a relationship conflict will arise that can derail strong bonds. Through marriage/couples counseling, constructively talking through your issues, the rough patches may not become large potholes. It is not a sign of weakness to seek out counseling but rather a sign of strength, concern and commitment for your partner and marriage/couple partnership. Brenda Erie provides resources, some of which are faith-based tools, for couples to communicate more effectively.
