Statistics for 2007 (the most recent available) show that in WA there were 12,290 marriages that year and 4,932 divorces. Therefore 40 percent of marriages end in divorce. More worryingly perhaps, is that half of those separations and divorces involve one or more children,and this affects around 4,600 children annually.
If you are someone struggling with family issues and problems, and need some one to turn to, you are not alone. Dealing with Family issues is a uniquely personal and very private matter and dealing with those issues can, and often does, leave an indelible mark on those involved. How the parties and associated family members “recover” from the situation is critical to their future well being.
Sometimes, deciding where to turn for advice on family issues can be difficult, but you do have an endless amount of resources at your finger tips, especially if you have access to the web. Forums and support groups exist for everything from divorce to addiction, where you can get family help or advice on family issues. These forums are non judgment zones where like minded people can congregate and discuss anything they want, share stories, and give advice on family issues and help family problems.
The great thing about online forums is that they are virtually anonymous. For people who may be ashamed or even afraid to discuss their issues, the Internet serves as an open platform for them to speak their views, get support, and give support and advice to others who may be having similar experiences to them.
Another great benefit about getting advice online is that it is free. While counseling may be a great fit for some people, most people are unable to afford it. The web gives you an outlet to get advice on family issues for no cost.
If you are are feeling alone, you are not. Consult the web for support groups and forums that can help you to get through it.
