You don’t need us to tell you that life is messy. Positive relationships have the power to transform lives, but every single one of us knows just how complicated things can be.
Across Australia, children, teenagers and adults are struggling with healthy and respectful relationships, marriage challenges and infidelity, bullying and anger, eating disorders, parenting know-how, traumatic events, addiction, stressful jobs competing with family life… the list goes on.
And while there’s no such thing as a perfect parent, we know that raising children is one of the hardest gigs in the world.
As people who are designed to socially connect, today our families, neighbourhoods and communities are filled with people who are busy, working longer hours and travelling, attached to devices and screens, and often just trying to get by.
Our connection with those we love, and even ourselves, can be strained at best.
