You are doing your very best to get better yourself- and you ARE doing that. I guess every one of us wishes it were a faster process, but for us grown-ups, it does take years.

If you really feel that your child (or children) might benefit from therapy, you could investigate what is available, and what the range of costs might be. My general impression is that young children, who usually are treated with a combination of art/play therapy and a therapeutic relationship, can benefit a great deal with quite short courses of therapy. They are young enough to still be in close contact with feelings and experiences which adults have often closed themselves off from. Often two or three years of therapy makes a huge difference for them. One of the hardest things is not to blame yourself for anything that might be amiss. You have, and are, doing your very best; if you decide you do need some additional help for them, that could be all to the good for the long-term happiness of your family. You wouldn't be alone: a number of posters have had their children in therapy at the same time as they are- and seem to be very glad they did so.
