"It is always with the best of intentions that the worst work is done"
Being a parent in today's world is difficult and demanding. It's daily work that has to be modified and restructured daily.
Parents, like all human beings, want to find "magic formula" that they can replicate in the management and education of their children. The belief behind this idea is that this would solve all their problems. Paradoxically, this is exactly how child-raising problems can form.
Since children respond to what they see and perceive from their parents, in general the therapeutic work is done with parents, not children.
"Men willingly believe what they wish"
A difficulty or problem does not have to become pathological before we decide we want to fix it.
Frequently, what makes it impossible itto take a step in that direction is that, by being immersed in the problem we can not see it from another perspective. It is as if we had fallen into a deep hole that is difficult to escape because, in looking up to find an escape, we are dazzled by the glare of the sun.
From the perspective of another person standing at the rim, the the sun is illuminating the hole and the route out is clear. From there they can give us guidelines and strategiesthat enable us to escape by our own efforts.

Couples can go through tough times which can lead to the breakup of their relationship.
