How to Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem -  Psychologist Gold CoastIt is often said that ‘Life was never meant to be easy’, but sometimes tough times for your family become even more difficult when your child is affected and starts to display behaviour that is out of character.  This is especially true when parents go through the difficult process of separation.  Many parents witness very distressing behaviours following the child’s return from visiting the other parent.  It is all too easy to conclude that the other parent is failing the child in some way.  But unfortunately, we have little control over what another adult does in their own home.  Wendy can show you how to manage this difficult time, make it much easier for your child’s emotions, and bring you peace of mind.
