Simone was a mom from suburbia at the top of her profession with a beautiful four-month-old son. She was back working full time despite being depressed. Her husband, dutiful as he was, saw himself as the primary bread winner and was rarely home. This left Simone alone to cope with Mikey, who cried hours on end. The couple had few friends and family nearby and the isolation exacerbated Simone’s feelings of helplessness. Exhausted, overwhelmed and barely able to cope, Simone started having thoughts of killing her baby. She felt guilty and ashamed because she loved her son and wanted to be a good mother. Thankfully, she reached for the phone and called The Family Tree Parenting HelpLine instead.
The classes taught me how to handle things for both my kids and myself. I really began to improve as a mother. It helped me see the good and the love, no matter how hard things were.
