Detached Parents: Signs Your Parent Can’t Connect

Detached Parnts
Failed suicide attempts

Emotionally detached parents can truly destroy a child’s life, functionality, zeal, and peace. The effects can follow children way into adulthood. It’s a sad reality that most people fail to consider.

No one ever wants to believe that a parent would do anything harmful to their child. But the reality is that there are some parents who simply don’t care. We must also keep in mind that some parents cannot manage the duties of being a parent, which results in the child being neglected and even abused.

In this video, I discuss emotionally detached parents and their characteristics.

Who are emotionally detached parents?

Managing a child with behavior problems is difficult. But things become more difficult as the child matures and begins to show behaviors in the school system. Once behaviors start coming out in the school or the home, things can go from mediocre to worse.

Things get worse when the reality of an immature parent comes to light. Immature parents tend to lack the structure, confidence, and education needed to raise a child. In many of these cases the parent(s) often face a cascade of challenges as a result of their negligence. Some of these consequences are legal.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
