Help! My kind wil nie meer lewe nie!

Help! My kind wil nie meer lewe nie!
Dit is iets wat ek geen ouer toewens nie. Ons as ouers wil tog die beste vir ons kinders hê, ons wil hê dat hul gelukkig moet wees en moet uitsien na ‘n rooskleurige toekoms waarin hulle hul drome kan verwesenlik. Die realiteit is egter dat baie kinders voel asof hul nie meer wil lewe nie en dink daaraan om selfmoord te pleeg –ten spyte van ouers se beste poging om hul kinders gelukkig te hou. 

Jou kind se emosionele behoeftes – en die grootste hiervan is die LIEFDE

Jou kind se emosionele behoeftes – en die grootste hiervan is die LIEFDE
Mia Keller Pringle het in 1996 kinders se 5 basiese emosionele behoeftes omsrkyf waarvan LIEFDE volgens my die belangrikste is. ‘n Kind wat onvoorwaardelike liefde ervaar, reeds vanaf voor geboorte af, het ‘n emosionele voorsprong op alle vlakke, want kyk as jy weet jy is geliefd by die huis kan die lewe maar kom – ek het ‘n vangnet wat vir my die nodige selfvertroue gee om alle uitdagings te hanteer. Hoe dra ons daardie soort liefde oor?

Tieners, Stress en Temperament

Tieners, Stress en Temperament

Alle mense het ‘n sekere vlak van stress of uitdagings nodig om optimaal te kan funksioneer. Sonder enige uitdagings gaan niemand hul volle potensiaal besef en bereik nie. Party kinders kan egter stress beter hanteer as ander. Spanning en angs kan ‘n destruktiewe effek op ‘n tiener se emosionele gesondheid hê en kan selfs lei to angs versteurings. Indien jy as ouer bekommerd is dat jou kind ‘n angs versteuring ontwikkel is dit beter om professionele hulp in te kry sodat hy of sy die regte hulp ontvang.

How to tell your child you are getting divorced

The Importance of Attachment - a must read for every parent

The Importance of Attachment - a must read for every parent
By making sure that you have a secure attachment with your child, you will help him learn that he is okay, worthy and good enough (at the very least). That you as his parents are trustworthy and that the world is a safe place that can be explored confidently. Most importantly, not only will you be giving your child a head start in life personally, but also interpersonally; when it comes to all his future relationships.

Getting divorced; but what about the kids?

Litigation, Mediation and Care and Contact Investigations

Getting divorced; but what about the kids?
Once a partner (the divorce initiator) informs the other partner that he or she wants a divorce the first thing they do; or the first advice they receive, is to get themselves a lawyer who can take care of the situation. Whilst it is not wrong to get a lawyer to represent you, there are other options to keep in mind. Many people are not knowledgeable about the law, especially the Children’s Act 38 of 2005 which provides guidelines as to how to go about a divorce when children are involved.
