This is Too Much.
Parents, we are trying the best we can, aren’t we? Life is tough right now. Between regular old Parenting (the hardest job in the world), PLUS working from home, and PLUS PLUS home-schooling our children, it is A LOT! It’s more than a lot; it’s unmanageable.
Not only is it a challenge for us parents, but it’s a challenge for our kids too. When children go through difficult challenges, their big feelings bubble over into big reactions and behaviors. And that doesn’t make it any easier on us, does it? So on top of meeting our work deadlines, keeping a somewhat manageable home, meeting our family members’ basic needs, and logging our children into their 5th Zoom meeting for the day, we are also needed for emotional support and co-regulation during the latest meltdown! Ahh!
How does one keep up??? Where does one find solutions for managing all these stressors? Who has time to call a Therapist for Parenting Support or their own Emotional Support? And how in the world would you find time to schedule an actual appointment during a Therapist’s typical business hours? (Wait, are there any Therapists who see clients at 10:00pm, after I’ve completed enough of what needs to be done in my day?)
We are here to help.
Your Creative Family Counseling Team understands. We get it. Our team has been brainstorming how we can help busy and overwhelmed parents and we’ve got some exciting news to share. We’ve got two new opportunities for families who are ready to quickly absorb and consume Parenting Tips and Positive Parenting solutions.
- NEW Monthly Emailer for Subscribers: Our Monthly Emailer will be a resource for parents who want to quickly understand and absorb some new parenting tips. It will include our latest Blog and Videos, Quick Ways to Connect with your children, an introduction to our new team members, Parenting Hacks, and books that we recommend for parents who have a bit more time on their hands. Visit our Contact Page to sign up to receive our Monthly Email!
- NEW Positive Parenting the Positive Discipline Way (Self-Paced) Videos: We are all finding ways to adapt to social distancing. It’s been so disappointing that we’ve been unable to offer our Positive Discipline Workshops the last few months, and it looks like it won’t be safe to do so for a while. So we are in the process of recording the Positive Discipline activities and education and plan to have it available on our site for purchase sometime in the fall of 2020. Parents will be able to purchase a Package of Six Positive Discipline Lessons, which are recorded by your very own Creative Family Counseling Team Members, who are all Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educators. You will be able to watch the videos and learn the material as quickly or slowly as they prefer and at any point in their day, even if it’s just 15 minutes before bed each night. Also available to purchase and download from our website will be the Positive Discipline Workbook, so everything will be right at your fingertips.
Need anything else?
Our hope is that with a quick read of the resources in our emailers and a self-paced viewing of the parenting lessons, that you will feel supported by us, just in a different way than usual. Oh, and if you do happen to find time in your hectic schedule to give us a call and schedule a Virtual Session or Parent Support Meeting, we’re here for you.
