Your child is not out to get you and there may be times when you may feel overwhelmed and nothing seems to work:

  1. Make sure your child is safe
  2. Remain calm
  3. Step away from the situation for a short time
  4. Try deep breathing
  5. If you feel you may lose control call a friend, family member or the distress line 416-408-HELP (4357)
