Deciding to Become a Parent
One of the most exciting times in one’s life is becoming a parent. Very few people go throughout life without some thought about what it would be like to raise a child. Yet many become mothers and fathers without having taken the time to consciously think about, plan and prepare for what may well be the biggest decision of their lives. Think about what kind of world it would be if people took the opportunity to decide whether, when, why and how they wanted to parent.
GTS helps an individual or couple explore what it means to become a parent. Here are just a couple of common topics client’s often explore:
Could I really give a child what it needs?
How do children cope with family differences?
How will children affect my current relationship?
Where will I find resources and support?
Considered multiples, disabilities etc?
Could I be a good single parent?
Is this the right time in my life to be a parent?
