Struggling with the challenges of being a parent? Hotline support is available in Ireland

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 13 hotlines that support parents in Ireland that can help you get through the rough patches. Reach out if you are struggling with these parenting challenges:

  • Insecurity about how to teach your child about responsibility and consequences
  • Feeling worried about the quality of nutrition your child receives
  • Fighting a lone battle against societal standards that you disagree with for your child
  • Feeling overwhelmed when your kid has tantrums or misbehaves
  • Struggling with limiting screen-time
  • Not having enough time for quality parenting
  • Your work is starting to decline because you are exhausted by your parenting duties
  • Your and your child’s temperaments don’t align, and you don’t know how to handle it

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 Ireland who can understand your doubts and feelings can help you form a path forward that works for you and your family.

Consider contacting a hotline in Ireland right away for free, private help with parenting.
