A Happier Family
During difficult times it can be easier to find happiness and acceptance in other things and disregard relationship problems within families. Children and teenagers can retreat to their rooms and spend endless hours on technology, finding acceptance in these places rather than spending quality time with the family. Phones and gadgets are there as a means of happiness when there are problems, rather than communicating with the people involved and solving them head on.
Problem behaviour can be an outlet that masks the truth that the family member is facing some kind of trouble or problem.
Therapy that involves the whole family can deal with any problems.
