Children upbringing involves building and developing of positive behaviours and self-concept for functioning as healthy adults who can contribute meaningfully to the development of the society. This requires conscious involvement of parents in children’s life. Unfortunately, parents have experienced stress as a result of their inabilities to meet with the demands of their roles. Stress as characterized by fear of failure, frustration, unhappiness, and etcetera has led to the exhibition of psychological disorders and maladjustment. This paper therefore presents management skills for resolving domestic stress by parents and enhancing adaptive behaviour that children can imbibe.
