Becoming a first-time parent is both an extremely exciting and overwhelming time in one’s life. While you are excitedly anticipating the arrival of your child, you are also grappling with the fear of what responsibilities come with raising a human being. The real journey does not begin until you hold your newborn in your arms- that is when both the tough decisions and unconditional love start. Raising a child requires patience and learning, and can be made easier by having a guiding hand throughout the process.

It is hard to stop comparing yourself to others. When seeing other parents, you may resort to thinking that they have it all together. It is important to remember that no one is perfect. No one has the blueprint of “the perfect way to raise a child”. However, many feel that if they are struggling then they are doing something wrong and failing at their job. This could not be farther from the truth. Being a parent is a daunting and demanding job that comes with many challenges to overcome. Even if you are not balancing an office job, being a stay-at-home parent is just as difficult.

Finding strategies that help you care for your children and discovering what works for you as a parent is very important. Building routines and finding ways to communicate with your children are just some of the things you can do to address the difficulties that come with raising them. There will be times when your child throws a temper tantrum or tells you that they can’t stand you. I am here to tell you that that is normal and should not scare you! All you have to do is find the best approaches to those obstacles. 

Apple Psychological is here to help! We offer parent training where you are provided with an opportunity to meet with a therapist to address your anxiety, questions, and concerns about being a parent. After you provide your therapist with information about yourself, you will begin learning tools to communicate, care, and guide your children. The parenting process is a long road and it is essential to have a safe space to air out your concerns. Your therapist will do that for you and will ensure the establishment of a respectful and trusting environment.

 Once you voice your worries and create personalized approaches to alleviate them, you will feel accomplished and better prepared to face the challenges of being a parent. The tools that therapy and training will give you will not only benefit you, but they will have a lasting positive impact on your children.
