Parental Burnout is an epidemic.
You may not have heard the term, but I’ll bet you know exactly what Parental Burnout is: prolonged overwhelming physical and mental exhaustion related to the parental role. When parents suffer Burnout, they distance themselves from their children in an attempt to restore themselves, resulting in them damaging the relationships around them and causing yet more parenting struggles. It truly is a vicious cycle – but it can be broken.
Adolescents need calm parents to help them regulate their emotions and work through life challenges together. When parents are mentally and physically exhausted, their tolerance levels are low, and they become just as frustrated and reactive as their adolescents. As a result, parents feel irritable, hopeless, empty and lost.
That’s where I come in!
