Child endangerment and child neglect

Unfortunately both of these have been recently making headlines in the Orlando, Florida news. We are saddened by the number of cases and encourage parents to see help.

Raising children can be one of the hardest jobs in the world and even more so if you are doing it alone! You are responsible for their care, safety, and nurturing. Add to this the daily stress of employment, manaUseful Tips

Psychology Today featured an article entitled How to Handle Your Anger at Your Child offers some suggestions when it comes to handling situations with your children. Below are a few that we found particularly useful:

• The most important thing to remember about anger is NOT to act while you’re angry. You can teach your child later when you are calm and can talk about the situation.
• Commit to No hitting, swearing, calling your child names, handing out any punishment while angry.
• Never scream at your children, that’s a tantrum. If you really need to scream, go into your car with the windows rolled up and scream where no one can hear. Just scream.
• Recognize that an angry state is a terrible starting place to intervene in any situation. Instead, give yourself a timeout and come back when you’re able to be calm. If your child is old enough for you to talk to tell them “I am too mad right now to talk about this. I am going to take a timeout and calm down.”
• If you frequently struggle with your anger, seek counseling. There’s no shame in asking for help.

Raising a child

can become a task that is not joyful, but overwhelming. When one becomes tired and overwhelmed, anger and rage can surface. If you find yourself in this situation – seek help immediately! Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your family or friends. Seek out assistance from local counseling services, churches or national organizations who are willing to help.
