Interestingly, most of my clients come to me after their children are grown up. Very rarely do parents come in while their children are in high school, middle school, or grade school.
Why? Perhaps because they think things will eventually work themselves out? Or maybe because the children are OUTTA here when they turn 18 and they don't have to worry about it anymore?
Although it's never too late, it's also never too early.
Parenting is a set of skills, it’s a process, and it is NOT transferred to your brain through the same process you created the child. In other words, the ability to have a child does not mean you have the ability to raise the child.
If you have experienced the silence of the teenager coming home from school with nothing to say, your process is either in need of repair or perhaps it's broken.
If your children get their primary information on life, religion, politics, and schoolwork from anywhere except your home, your system is broken. If your children would rather be somewhere other than your home, your process is broken.
If you are a single parent, and your child would rather be with your spouse, you are the problem. It can usually be fixed, but you are the change agent and money and toys are not the solution.
It takes a village to raise a child, only if there is trust and respect in the home. The village is part of the collective that strengthens the home, not the other way around. Our society is only as strong as the individual families that constitute her foundation.
If you can't sleep at night because of your children, waiting until they are 18 is avoiding the inevitable. It won't go way, it doesn't get easier and your grandchildren are at risk. Is that what you want?
