The adults feel stressed out at work and so do the kids when they’re at school. This stress can obviously take it’s toll. Sometimes it can get to the point where a third party, confidential counselor is needed to help the parents and children learn to better understand where each party is coming from and learn to better get along if not just compromise on some of the minor issues.
