Get help from a parenting support helpline in South Africa

Parenting comes with a wide range of challenges. Providing safety, giving emotional warmth, tending to your child's psychological and social needs, and caring for their physical well-being, could sometimes overwhelm you. You can get support from 2 parenting hotlines in South Africa if you are noticing:

  • Having a hard time saying “no” to your child
  • Being afraid to let your child experience pain, disappointment, and frustration
  • Not having enough time for quality parenting
  • Being unable to balance your career with family life
  • Wanting to protect your child from any harm but not being able to
  • You are unsure of how to instil good values in your children
  • You spread yourself too thin
  • Not finding the right balance between who you are as an individual and a parent

It’s absolutely normal to feel a range of emotions about parenting. It can be as joyful as it can be scary and challenging. Being a parent is a lot of work, and both positive and negative feelings are a natural response.

You may feel reluctant to reach out for support. After all, so many people have done it, so why would you need help? However, everyone needs help from time to time. You can talk to someone in South Africa who understands how you are feeling and can help you navigate through the challenges of parenting.

For free and confidential support with parenting, consider contacting a hotline in South Africa today.
