Parent Support Services

Parenting is the most challenging job that some adults undertake. With such high demands, it’s not uncommon to feel frustrated. Parents can lose control when they are feeling isolated, involved in difficult relationships, experiencing financial stress or lacking information on child development and child-rearing techniques.

However, becoming an informed parent will help you build effective child rearing skills and find your place in the community. 

Sometimes the best way to handle these feelings is to communicate with other people in your position. You may want to consider joining the Greater Atlanta Jewish Abilities Alliance (JAA) Listserv for Adults.

Parenting a child who is over 18 adds to many complications, particularly when life issues can frequently include caring for other children and for older adults (parents) simultaneously. Jewish Family & Career Services provides counseling and supports for all life cycle stages.
