Supporting Healthy Coping Skills in Children

We all get upset or angry every once in a while, and children are exactly the same. WE have to TEACH our children how to respond to those feelings in a SAFE way!

To get ideas on how to help your child cope with his/her feelings, check out the info about coping skills under the Resources icon on the left of this page.
