Families Need Support: The Challenges of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. PHP-c86
Being a parent is exhausting work, even when children do not have emotional problems. All parents need information, encouragement, training, and support to raise healthy children. No one is born with all the skills necessary to handle every problem, yet too often, when parents do ask for help for their children, they are turned down until the family's problems become too severe to ignore. This article offers advice on where parents can turn for help. [This article was adopted from "A Guidebook for Parents of Children with Emotional or Behavioral Disorders." PACER, 2001.]
