When parenting during adolescence becomes difficult and stressful, when parents are experiencing difficult relationships with their children due to behaviour problems at home and/or in school, they can seek the help of a dispute resolution professional, a mediator to deal with the problem and restore their relationship.
The professional using specialized conflict resolution methods facilitates communication and understanding that can help parents get to the root of the problem and resolve it positively. This process helps parents in their role of decision making and guides them in making the best decisions possible. They develop skills to handle conflict more effectively and improve communication.
They are assisted in identifying the child’s underlying needs that may be expressed in a way their parents did not understand. It helps address issues involving school difficulties, relationships with friends and family and other problems and bond with their child.
Parents learn to communicate and relate better with their children. It encourages children to express their emotions positively, share their needs and removes tension in child and parent relationships. The child becomes more comfortable in your presence, learns to open up to you and you rebuild a positive and strong relationship with your child.
This approach reduces vulnerability of children and the need for future child welfare involvement.
Parent child conflict resolution can help parents resolve issues with their youth and grown children, communicate better and minimize problems. They manage conflicts which they cannot handle on their own, find solutions and improve communication.
