Take Steps for Your Family’s Behavioral Health

Stop Bullying logo

Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. The past several months have put unprecedented strains on many families and parents and children may not have access to familiar coping tools like sports, arts programs, hanging out with friends, or group activities. To help children cope, parents can initiate open, age-appropriate discussions with their children about what they’re experiencing or worried about. They can help their children feel supported and more secure by reassuring them that they will find positive ways to get through these challenging times together. When children feel supported by their parents they are also more likely to turn to them for help if they experience bullying.
