Employee Assistance, Parenting Issues

Employee assistance can help promote the welfare of your employees, and as a result, improve productivity and a happy working environment in your business.

Let's face it, everyone goes through difficulties, experiences distress, and troubles. Crisis doesn't wait until we are ready to deal with it, but rather occur when we're least prepared. Challenges are an inevitable part of our everyday life. Just because your employees are smiling, doesn't mean that they don't experience these difficulties and worries.

It is in the best interest of the employer to provide employee assistance services to help them deal with whatever they are going through. Personal or professional issues can harm the best of workers, affecting their psyches and causing them a range of emotional and physical problems. Poor concentration, fatigue, a lack of motivation, poor immune response, and anger are just some of the symptoms they may be experiencing.

Some of the problems that could be causing trouble in the lives of your employees could include family problems, substance abuse, performance problems, depression, anger management issues, domestic violence, stress, anxiety, divorce, parenting problems and issues with their self-esteem.

Without employee assistance, your company may be in danger. Research has shown the importance of happy, healthy workers on a company's productivity and profitability. It is important to appreciate the impact of these issues on an employees ability to be productive and cope with pressures at work as well.

Employee assistance programs can help take your company to the next level by empowering your employees with suitable coping, communication and behavioural skills. It will help them with human growth and enjoying a better life at work and at home.

It's not until we become parents that we realize just how daunting a task we have to raise a human being. Pregnancy is a miracle for most, and small babies are adorable, despite the restless nights. However, long months of precious little sleep and caring for a helpless infant who can't verbalise their needs in language we understand can take its toll on the strongest of people. These are just some of the many parenting issues people around the world face every day.

Little people have their own unique personalities, needs and quirks and being responsible for them is not always the easiest thing to do. Of course, most parents don't have the luxury to spend every waking moment with their offspring, as we face work stress, marital issues, complicated family relationships, financial pressure and much more. Most children are left with caregivers for most of the day, where they create other relationships and where personalities are shaped in different ways.

While parenting is not for the faint hearted, it certainly is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a human on Mother Earth.

Parenting therapy can help parents to better cope with this daunting tasks by learning how to deal with outside influences, and how to cope with the demands of a young child or a teenager. It can help parents to be more cognizant of what they say to their children and how to cope with stressful or traumatic events, peer pressure, sibling relationships and day-to-day pressures faced by their children.
