Whatever the age of your child, parenting requires lifelong skills. Good communication is the key to a good relationship with the children in your life. Being a parent is a joyful and rewarding experience but it can be challenging. Your child's needs change as they get older. Knowing what to expect can make parenting less stressful.
Relationships with family, friends, at work and at home are important. Open communication is the key. Challenges include talking to children and teenagers about sex, negotiating intimacy, conflict, separation and divorce, sexuality and sexual health.
