Wanneer jou kind afgeknou word

Author: Lausanne Hugo
Ouers kom sien my gereeld met die kommer dat hulle kinders afgeknou word. Afknouery is ongelukkig ‘n groot probleem in ons samelewewing en dit word net erger. Die afknouery vind gewoontlik by die kind se skool plaas wat dit soms moeilik maak om aan te spreek. Dit is baie moeilik vir die ouers en ook vir die kinders om te hanteer. Hulle voel gewoonlik hulpeloos en magteloos om die afknouery te stop en talle ouers weet nie watter kant toe om te gaan nie. Met hierdie artikel wil ek graag vir ouers ‘n paar riglyne gee wat gevolg kan word ten einde die situasie beter te kan hanteer.

Holiday-Proofing Your Relationship

Author: Anri van den Berg

There is a common perception out there that relationships seem to take a turn for the worst during the holiday-season...and we can attest to that!

After all; our busiest times are after long weekends or holidays...

But is it really a case of relationships going wrong over December times, or might there be something else going on entirely?

The Chronic Anger Cycle in Couple's Relationships

Author: Louis Steenkamp
Once the relationship is "stuck" in the chronic anger cycle partners dig their heels in the ground and struggle to listen and understand each other because each partner is consumed with his or her own pain and discomfort due to experiencing a lack of understanding and personal value in the relationship. It is difficult to support others when you experience living life in "crisis mode."

Introduction – Forgiveness Series

Author: Anri van den Berg
One of the biggest mistakes we as individuals make in relationships is that we often fail to realise that the person we are involved with is a human being; and therefore an imperfect creature. We have such high expectations of married life and of our life partners in particular; that it often doesn't even take much to disappoint us. We often forget that, we ourselves are; in actual fact; imperfect creatures as well. If I look back over my life, the mistakes that I've made are plentiful indeed! It is therefore not a question of what to do IF one of you disappoints or hurts the other one… it's a question of how to handle the situation WHEN it happens.

Quality Time in a Relationship - By Tondani Mukhanu

Love Languages

Author: Anri van den Berg

"Quality time" is an informal reference to time spent with loved ones; such as close family, partners or friends that is in some way important, special, productive or profitable. It is time that is set aside for undivided attention to people that we love, in this case more specifically our partners. Quality time may also refer to time spent performing some favorite activities.

Afknouery: Wat kan jy doen wanneer jou kind die boelie is?

Author: Lausanne Hugo
Ek hanteer gereeld ouers wat deur onderwysers gebel word met probleme oor hulle kinders. Dit is gewoontlik vir die ouers baie sleg wanneer hulle kinders gereeld in die moeilikheid by die skool is. Sommige ouers voel onmiddelik skuldig en hulle voel dat hulle slegte ouers is. Wanneer die ouers direk geblameer word vir die kind se negatiewe gedrag, neig die ouers om minder positief te reageer. Wanneer die situasie sensitief deur die skool hanteer word en die ouers nie voel dat hulle blameer word nie, reageer hulle gewoontlik beter. Wat is egter toepaslike maniere om hierdie kwessie aan te spreek?

"Wat is ‘n spelterapeut? Help jy kinders met spelling?" is vragies wat ek gereeld in my praktyk hoor.

Ek sal ook die verskil tussen spelterapie, arbeidsterapie en spraakterapie uitlig.

Questions to answer with regards to needs being met in a relationship

Author: Anri van den Berg
We enter into a relationship with the hope, the idea and the expectation that this other person will - without fail - be the answer to all our prayers. He/she will miraculously be able to meet any and every need of ours, as and when it arises. The problem is your partner enters this relationship with the same expectations of you, but with his/her own unique set of needs. What we end up with in effect - is almost a situation of 2 people sitting around waiting for the other person to fulfill all their needs, waiting for the other one to start making them happy...
