What You Can Do To Prevent Violence. Bright Futures for Families.
National Parent Consortium, Washington, DC.
Noting that parents play an essential role in preventing or breaking the cycle of violence, this pamphlet shows parents how to prevent violence in their home and community. The pamphlet, designed for use with children of all ages, is part of the "Bright Futures for Families" series, which offers information on health and child development for use by families and by health care professionals. The pamphlet focuses on strategies and action steps parents can take to help teach their children alternatives to violent behavior. Parents are given suggestions for showing love and concern, developing two-way communication with their children, handling powerful emotions effectively, finding solutions to conflict without fighting, keeping their child from being victimized by a bully, preventing their child from becoming a bully, and being an advocate to reduce school violence. The pamphlet concludes with a list of seven print and videotape resources to help prevent violence. (KB)
