Concrete Supports for Parents
- Beyond social support from friends and family, parents also need useful information about resources for their family.
- Ask service people for specific information. “Is there a food bank where I can get food for dinner tonight?”, “Where is the office where I can sign up for Food Stamps? Can you give me directions?”, or “Can you recommend the name of a child psychologists or family counselor?” “Do you have written information on effective discipline for my six year old?”
- Make sure that you understand the information provided. If you are not sure – ask more questions.
