Knowsley Council has launched a range of FREE online resources to support parents who are struggling in their relationships.
See it differently, OnePlusOne and RelationKit provide videos, mindfulness sessions and downloadable cards to help with some common things, like struggling to communicate with a partner, raising children together and parenting after a break-up.
Conflict is a normal and necessary part of family life. However, when conflict between people is frequent, intense or poorly resolved it can have negative impacts on the whole family. It is known to cause emotional distress and behaviour problems during childhood and impact on children’s life chances.
If harmful conflict is identified and supported earlier, it will lead to better outcomes for the whole family.
Cllr Margaret Harvey, Knowsley Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “Relationship conflict is common and takes place in every family. However, failure to resolve conflict can have a negative impact on children and relationships with others.
“These are fantastic tools that can help families improve their relationships and I would urge residents to look at all of the resources available.”
