At Star Point Counseling we have a team of therapists committed to helping. One frequent issue that comes up is questions about effective parenting and blended families. The following information was written by our Co-Founder and Clinical Director, Clarissa Crystal-Belle to provide some insight to families with these issues. For more information please check out our website http://www.starpointcounselingtampa.com.
We teach and demonstrate effective parenting skills and techniques that will help you to break through the communication barriers that may be undermining your authority in the home.
Either parent may be inadvertently feeding into the fever of non-compliance, triangulation, manipulation, arguments, willfulness, poor academic status, school referrals, poor peer selection, and other problems you may be facing with your adolescent or child.
While we believe that the luckiest children are those who have grandparents and other extended family involvement, we also address parenting concerns and boundary issues, stemming from meddling or any staying extended family members – including the often dreaded “in-laws.”
We understand the excitement and challenges that come with blended families as well, and want to help you to help each other make adjustments to the changes that occur when two families join under one roof.
