Parenting Support Q & A

What is parenting support?

Parenting support is a form of counseling that provides parents with guidance when navigating difficult situations that involve their children. There are many reasons to consider parenting support. While some parents struggle to connect with their children as they age, others must face unexpected behavioral issues at home. 

Whether you’re single, married, have one child or multiple, the experienced mental health care providers at The Modalities Group provide personalized strategies and coping mechanisms to help deal with child-rearing challenges.

Who should consider seeking parenting support?

Many families can benefit from parenting support, but some circumstances may warrant professional guidance more than others. You may want to consider parenting support with the team at The Modalities Group if you:

Are divorcing

Divorce alters the entire family unit, and your child may have difficulty adapting to this major change. Parenting support gives you the tools to help your child settle into the new dynamics in your family.

Have suffered past abuse

Parents with a history of abuse are more likely to develop aggressive or reactive child-rearing approaches. Children can absorb these behaviors, leading to anger, aggression, and impulsive behaviors at school, home, or in their social lives.

Are dealing with chronic health concerns

Chronic diseases and health concerns may interfere with your ability to work, attend school functions, and spend quality time with your child. Many children become fearful, anxious, or resentful when their parents experience health issues, which can lead to conflict at home, school, or socially.

Have children with behavior issues

Many children develop behavioral concerns as they age. Conflicts with friends, difficulty in school, and past trauma significantly influence how a child behaves. 

Are experiencing marital conflict

Whether you and your partner are struggling with financial concerns, differing child-rearing approaches, infidelity, or day-to-day conflict, children often pick up on stress at home.

What does parenting support look like?

Parenting support looks different for every family. After an initial consultation, the team at The Modalities Group can help design an individualized plan that helps improve communications in your family and resolve conflicts at home.

Parenting support may include:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Family counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Stress management

The experienced mental health care providers may combine several types of therapy to ensure you and your family receive the support you deserve.
