Giving Your Family a Second Chance to Heal

The breakdown of a family unit can occur for one reason, but continue on for another.

When family problems begin it can cause internal fighting amongst family members, the need to get away from the family, and disowning a family member that is causing the stress.

While families do fight, it doesn’t have to turn into a war. Did you know that 90 percent of families have some form of a fight at some stage in their life?

There is a way for your family to get through this difficult time. Everyone just has to be committed to trying.

Common Signs That Family Problems May Be Occurring

  • When there’s internal fighting amongst family members that continues daily.
  • When you feel like it’s difficult to talk to your family members.
  • You start to hear members of the family calling each other names.
  • You start to see an increase in the amount of violence between each other.
  • A specific family member calls it quits and cuts ties with you or someone else in the family.
  • Children start to exhibit low grade levels such as constant F’s.

Your Approach to Getting Better

A fall in children’s grade, violence, and constant fighting are all typical signs that there’s problems within the family unit.
However, you don’t have to continue on this way. Your family can get the help and support they need.

If you and the other members of the family are ready to make a change, it starts with a few simple steps.

The first step is understanding and accepting that your family is having problems.

The second step is coming together as a family and getting everyone committed to getting help.

The third step is reach out and accepting help from a registered psychologist who specialises in the area of family counselling. Family counselling can help to bridge the gap between family members to unify and strengthen the family bond.

How Do Family Problems Start?

Family problems can occur for a number of different reasons. Some of these include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Past issues that have been unresolved and which haven’t been healed.
  • When one or both parents show abusive tendencies which are enforced on their children.
  • Controlling and overbearing parents that may not let their children explore the world.
  • A communication breakdown between members of the family with minimal empathy as to how the other person feels.
  • Parents have limited knowledge on how to raise and teach children to grow up well in life.
