Difficulties in a family with children

Parents can receive help for any difficulties that are related to the growth and development of a baby, child and adolescent from various municipal services. These services include family counselling centres and school health care services. Families with children are also provided with support for any troubles that are related to their finances, health and ability to cope. Several organisations and churches also help families with children who are experiencing difficulties or crises.
