Healthy Self-Esteem for Parent and Child


Child-rearing is a stressful experience, especially in modern society with its fragmented values, dual parent employment, divorce, and loss of extended family support. Parents of teenagers may experience the greatest stress of all. They are faced with the difficult task of guiding young people who are in the midst of a dramatic, and sometimes turbulent, transition from childhood to young adulthood. With the onset of puberty come the dangers associated with sexuality and pregnancy, substance abuse, and automobile use – issues that heighten parents' apprehension and may increase conflict with their teenagers. Continued stress and frustration can wear parents down, diminishing their sense of selfworth and creating tension between spouses.
