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.
