Mothers with Mental Illness : Learn How to Maintain Your Relationship with Your Children
This book contains proven steps and strategies on how you can become a responsible mother to your children while dealing with your mental illness. Often when a family member comes for counseling due to the mental illness of a loved one, they are trying to find solutions and strategies to get their loved one to accept their illness and take responsibility for their actions or get into treatment; when this does not happen naturally in families where a mental illness exists, the home can become quite chaotic, disorganized, and filled with tension. Spouses often find it extremely frustrating and taxing when their ill partner is unable to seek help for their illness and consequently is also unable to contribute to chores, child rearing, family events and daily routines. Parents of adult children with a mental illness will often extend the duration of their parental responsibilities such as providing room and board, taxing to doctor's appointments, raising grandchildren and providing financial support. When a family environment becomes chaotic, we sometimes go into survival mode and try to cope as best we can from day to day. Often we try to hide this chaos from the children involved; we try to shelter them as best we can in order to protect them. Unfortunately these days our children are learning very quickly and are very intuitive. This can make it very difficult for a parent or grandparent to hide the mental illness from the child. Hence, it's become significant for mother's with mental illness to learn how to maintain relationships with their children.
