Consequences of parental burnout

Parental burnout has far-reaching consequences for the parents concerned, but also for their spouse and children

For the parent

Parental burnout significantly increases sleep disorders, addictive behaviors and suicidal ideations

For the spouse

Parental burnout increases marital conflicts and adulterous mind

For the children

Parental burnout significantly increases neglect and violence (often verbal, sometimes physical) towards children. Parental burnout increases the risk of parental neglect or abuse much more than job burnout or depression.

These consequences call for early and correct diagnosis and effective treatment.
