Parents' problems should not affect children, but children often are the unintended victims in separation and divorce. The goal is to build peaceful bridges for children to cross between parents. Family counseling helps to resolve conflicts that may have been building up or continuing for months or years.
Children have deep feelings and are frightened and don't understand when parents get involved in fierce conflicts. Their beautiful little faces don't show the scars they carry inside from the fights they see between their parents, and they can be affected for years after by a single violent incident, similar to soldiers who have been in fierce combat.
The good news is that it is possible to build or re-build relationships and safe environments for your children through counseling. In FACES' group and counseling sessions, parents focus on the needs of the child while learning more effective ways of communication.
