Parent-Child Relational Problems
Unfortunately, not every parent and child will always have a positive relationship. They may find it hard to get through a day without arguing and bickering with each other. There could be issues with trust and past grievances that could be keeping the relationship from progressing.
For example, parent-child relationship issues are fairly common among adoptive families. Many adopted children struggle with issues like Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) or Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) that can have a toll on the relationships they have with their family members. Some adopted children may act out because they feel guilty for loving people who don’t belong to their biological family.
