These articles are a matter of my opinion and perspective, offered to help stimulate parents' thinking about their child raising and common concerns, conflicts, and changes that typically occur. They are meant to be educational only. Because  they are general in nature, they should NOT be used as a substitute for getting qualified professional psychological, medical, or legal help should serious need arise.
