More than ever before children are struggling to cope with the pressures of life. Huge numbers of young people across the western world, are being diagnosed with; severe mental health difficulties; self-harming; and committing suicide. So much so, in the UK, transforming young people’s mental health care has become a top priority for the Prime Minister, Theresa May.
No parent wants to feel as though they have failed, but often because most parents are currently facing huge pressures to raise their children, this is exactly how they do feel. Many mums and dads are struggling with working multiple jobs, because of the unstable financial climate, leaving little time to focus on supporting their children to succeed.
These pressures can lead to many parents becoming trapped in a constant, daily battle, with their child and left feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and without any idea on how to change the situation.
