Are you struggling with parenting? Contact a hotline in Canada for support

Parenting can be tough. There are challenges to overcome every single day. You might feel overwhelmed at times. If you're needing support, there are 3 hotlines that support parents in Canada that can help you get through the rough patches. Reach out if you are struggling with these parenting challenges:

  • Not finding the right balance between who you are as an individual and a parent
  • Being afraid to let your child experience pain, disappointment, and frustration
  • Having a hard time saying “no” to your child
  • Unsure of what discipline techniques work best
  • Feeling guilty over spending time at work instead of with your child
  • Not having enough time for quality parenting
  • Feeling overwhelmed when your kid has tantrums or misbehaves
  • Finding it challenging to control your emotions when your child misbehaves

It’s safe to say there is not a parent who did not struggle with parenting at some point. It can be an experience that challenges you like nothing before. However, it is also a learning process. No one was born a perfect parent.

It’s okay to allow yourself to feel a range of different emotions about parenting. Getting proper support could help you navigate through this challenge with more ease. Speaking to someone in Canada who can understand your doubts and feelings can help you form a path forward that works for you and your family.

If you think you might need support with your parenting, consider contacting a helpline in Canada for free, confidential help.
