Hi, good on you for recognising you are having some difficulties. People often think they should naturally be great parents but the reality is it is hard work for many people, especially when you are under stress through hardship. I'd suggest a couple of things;
- try and organise some regular breaks for you and your daughter, perhaps with your parents or in a childcare centre.
- find out where your nearest Family Relationship Centre is, these are Govt. funded centres run by various agencies to support families. They are there to help you so utilise them. You can find out about them and their locations here
- I'd also suggest you see if there is a Tuning Into Kids course running near you. This is a terrific course that will help you and your daughter. The website is here
- if none of these are available then pop into your local neighbourhood or community centre and see what resources re available to assist you. Another option is to give your local Relationships Australia office a call and have a talk to them, they are a great service as well, see here
It is good that you are recognising you are struggling, it is even better if you act on that and get some help now before you end up injuring your daughter so follow up these suggestions and book yourself in to talk to someone NOW, don't put it off, do it NOW.
I wish you well.
