Healthy Relationships are at the heart of whether the experience of being a parent-carer feels enjoyable or highly stressful. Healthy relationships contribute to improved mental health and physical health and educational outcomes of both children and the adults with the caring responsibilities. When relationships are healthy children and adults enjoy spending time together and can solve problems more easily. There are key skills for everyone to learn that make a big difference.

Poor relationships from an early age can lead to long term relationship problems. However it is never too late to turn things around.
There are many different factors which can affect children’s relationships which you can read about below.
