Parental counseling


In our role as a parents there are many things that raise us question marks and make us doubt the correctness of our actions in relation to our own children. There are times when our reactions to children's behaviors can hinder communication and relationships with them, and they are more reluctant than children to be willing to communicate with us as parents. It is said that "The road to hell is paved with good intentions", we parents always want the good of our children, we think we know what will help them to have a better, easier life than ours and we try to make them understand this is done by imposing rules that children may not understand and it is difficult for them to accept. That is why to call for external help, when we feel that we are losing communication with our child, that we no longer listen and hear each other, is more a proof of responsibility and clarity of the parental act than of weakness and lack of parental competences.
