Sheri O'Brien, LCPC | There are times while moving through life's journey that our marriages and/or our families begin to show signs of struggle and conflict. Maintaining a marriage or raising children/teenagers does not always come easy. Differences of opinions and power struggles often occur and there is never that "darn rule book" that would tell us exactly what to do. Sheri often thought it would be great if each child when born, or at the alter when getting married, that a rule book of conflict resolution would be presented. If would make our lives so much easier if we could just turn to a specific page and magically, the answers to the current problem would appear.
Unfortunately, no such book exists. However, there is a large body of knowledge in the behavioral health field that allows us to weather the storms strategically and effectively. This body of knowledge enables us to be effective in our marriages and with raising our children/teens over time.
With children/adolescents and families, conflicts can be brief and a normal part of development. Other times these conflicts are chronic and reach such a problematic level that additional help is needed. Power struggles are part of your child’s or teenager’s normal development and power struggles often present themselves as they grow older. It is often a desire for a feeling of significance for your child/teen/spouse, going up against a parent’s or spouse’s desire for a civil family or marriage atmosphere. Hence conflicts emerge as both sides strive to achieve their sought after goals. As children/teens/or spouses strive to be more independent, it often can stress parents and spouses out and create disruption in a once peaceful home.
During life's challenging times, it may be time to seek out a professional for better understanding, clarity, and direction. If you desire a better understanding of your child/teen, if you desire less power struggles with your children, if you seek better communication with your spouse, perhaps it is time to make that call you often thought of making. If you are struggling with a life situation and need direction, Sheri can help you.
