Prevention Month Tip 1: It Helps to Have a Sense of Humor
When it comes to kids, sometimes you just gotta laugh. Having a sense of humor can help you get through tough times – and bring your family closer together. Don’t worry if this doesn’t come naturally – building resiliency takes time. But the pay-off is worth it – strong families raise great kids!
During National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, learn how you can help prevent child abuse and neglect by building parental resiliency. What does that mean? Parents who are emotionally resilient are able to:
• Bounce back during tough times
• Maintain a positive attitude (most of the time!)
• Solve everyday problems creatively
• Model for their children how to manage daily stress
