It is not unusual for a child to get upset or angry, but when does this anger begin to represent a problem? The first step a parent or guardian can take is to seek help from a professional counselor. A certified psychologist can help the parents and child, often more quickly, with identifying the source of the anger, and the child will feel like they have been heard in a supportive environment, free of judgment or predisposition.
What is mental illness?
Mental illness is often called the invisible illness and it affects millions of people each year. While it may present itself in numerous behaviors and physical forms, it originates in the brain and its components; you cannot simply look at someone and determine if they have a mental illness.
Infidelity involves an action or state of being unfaithful to a spouse or committed partner. Infidelity can include emotional, mental and or physical components and is most commonly expressed as sexual or romantic deceitfulness. Infidelity can also come in the form of financial, occupational, or social dishonesty. A study conducted by the Institute for Family Studies illustrates that 16% of Americans are unfaithful to their partners with higher rates for men than women. The older the age of men the greater the likelihood of infidelity with the highest rates occurring between 70-79 years of age. Women experience the highest rate between 60-69 years of age. Cheating is linked as both precursor and a result of most separations and divorces. The foundation of any relationship is trust, intimacy and respect. Infidelity severely impacts the foundation of a relationship and is difficult to repair. With a good support system including family, spiritual and professional counseling the struggles associated with infidelity can be reduced and managed.
Anyone experiencing a divorce or separation involving a child/children will benefit from creating a parenting plan. A parenting plan is an agreement negotiated by the parents of the child/children and is overseen by the court system to ensure the best interests and needs of the child/children are being addressed.
A parenting plan may be different for each child and may require changes over time, it is, however, a legal document and should be carefully followed to avoid any legal repercussions or forced changes through noncompliance. A solid parenting plan avoids excessive litigation time and expense while reducing stress and anxiety on both the parents and the child/children when it comes to making urgent and major life decisions.
First, your child is listening to everything you say, they are refusing to comply with what you are asking or saying. Second, children learn very quickly the context and tone of words and phrases being used, even if they don’t know the full meaning or an appropriate response.
Nothing is often more painful than experiencing betrayal in a relationship. During a betrayal, it may appear as if everything comes to stop, instantly crashing down, and you can barely breathe. The pain of a betrayal touches at the very core and heart of our trust, one’s ability to bond and connect with others in a healthy and meaningful way; the gateway into one’s most intimate self.
Dyslexia is usually defined when an individual experiences difficulty with the following reading-related skills; spelling of words, rapidly reading, writing out words, sounding out words mentally, word pronunciation and understanding what is being read. It is often not diagnosed until children reach school age.
Divorce is epidemic in the United States. Although that might seem concerning, it’s pandemic in the state of Arizona. What does that mean? It means we’ve raised the practice of the divorce blame game to a whole new level.
If you do not have children, you can get away with the blame game. However, even then, it will just show up in your next marriage. That is why we see greater percentages of failed second marriages than first marriages.
If you want to change your life and change your relationships, then start with yourself because that is where responsibility begins and ends.
Team: Two or more individuals working toward a common goal.
Teamwork: The ability to work together to gain optimal results.
Communication: The ability to understand another and to make enable another to understand you.
To often individuals are assigned to a team without much thought. Given a goal and told to meet it by a certain date. That’s great if the team can work together and communicate effectively with each other. In a perfect world, everyone would do their job clearly communicate with their team members and gain the goal within the time allowed.
Divorce is rampant in the United States. An average of 48% of first marriages end in divorce in the US. In Arizona, that figure rises to 67%. It seems catastrophic number, doesn’t it? People that were so madly in love only months or years ago who swore to never live without each other. Remember that line “through sickness and pain” come to a place where they can no longer be under the same roof together.
