Coping Skills for You & Your Child

As the parent of a struggling child, you often find yourself wondering what you can do to help them feel better. It seems like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. Their personality has changed and sometimes you worry that it might get worse. You know they have so much potential - where did it go? Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry about your child and to know they'll ask for help when they need it. They would feel better about themselves and you would feel better about their ability to handle difficult situations and offer support when they need it. Dr. Vanessa C. Cantu, licensed professional counselor, crisis intervention counselor for NEISD, and founder of the Bullying Empowerment Center, will discuss several ways to help your child meet the challenges that come their way – and in turn, help you breathe a sigh of relief.
