What are parenting issues and stressors?

Parenting can be a source of incomparable joy and happiness, but the challenges you face as a parent can be immense. You must care for your child’s every need and provide them with the knowledge and skills to lead a successful, rewarding life when they grow up. Parenting stressors make this already tough job even more demanding. You might have a preschooler who bites, a first or second grader who is constantly in trouble at school, or a teen with failing grades. You and your child may struggle to live together, causing stress and upsetting other family members, or you may feel unable to cope or that you have failed as a parent. If this is your experience, you may benefit from speaking to one of our skilled therapists who can help better manage your stress.

What causes parenting issues and stressors?

There are several risk factors that increase your likelihood of having parenting issues. These include:

  • Financial difficulties
  • Lack of sleep
  • Having two or more preschoolers
  • Working long hours
  • Parenting a child with physical or developmental disabilities
  • Suffering past abuse
  • Relationship issues
  • Divorce
  • Physical health problems or disabilities
  • Mental health disorders
  • Substance use disorder and addiction
  • Grief
  • Job loss
  • Exhaustion

In addition to these issues, your child may develop problems that have a significant impact on their relationship with you. They may have experienced a traumatic event, become involved with friends who led them astray, or been a victim of abuse themselves. Undiagnosed attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects many children and adolescents. They could also have another behavioral disorder, such as conduct disorder or oppositional defiant disorder. Your child may be suffering depression, anxiety, or an eating disorder. They may be contemplating self-harm. These kinds of problems can occur at any age, but they are especially common in adolescence.
