All families face pressures at times. These family monsters can grow and become overwhelming if we don’t talk about them. They are a normal part of family life but they don’t have to scare us. If we face our family monsters, bring them into the open, they get smaller and easier to cope with. That’s why we’re starting a national conversation about the pressures affecting all families. Share our short film or find out how you can join the conversion below.
Our research shows that the main thing people do or want to do to face their family monsters is to talk to someone. By talking about your pressures you can stop them becoming overwhelming, relieve the pressure or find that you need some additional support. To find out more about how to have what can be a difficult first conversation or get additional support you may need.
Sharing on social media how you have faced the pressures on your family can help us all face our monsters. Join the conversation using #MyFamilyMonsters so that we can all share examples of what works and support each other in facing our family monsters together. It helps everyone to know that every family faces pressures at some point.
We have lots planned throughout the year as part of the Family Monsters Project and loads of ways you can get involved. Take a look below at some of our upcoming family monster moments.
