Here2Help Supporting happy parental relationships
We are all living in very difficult and uncertain times, this may mean disagreements are more likely to occur amongst people living together in these circumstances.
This is a very normal way to be responding to these difficult times and whether you’re parenting together or apart, there are ways in which we can stop this from increasing stress and anxiety within our homes particularly when children are present.
Below are links to some resources that you may find helpful. They include content from a range of organisations that provide information and support for family relationships.
Support with things like managing your child’s behaviour, talking to your child about Coronavirus or dealing with anxiety is available from Worcestershire’s Starting Well service. You can request support from Starting Well (opens in new window)
