A Guide to Help Children Bloom: Parenting Guide
We all feel stressed sometimes. Some stress is a normal, healthy part of life. It can help us stay safe, try harder, or make us grow stronger. However, intense stress that doesn’t go away can be too much to handle without help.
As a parent or caregiver, there are ways you can help your child handle intense stress. Much like a seed that overcomes a difficult environment to grow and flower, you and your child can bloom even in challenging times. This guide has nurturing tips and resources that can protect you and your child from the effects of intense stress. These ideas will also help you connect with your child.
The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST) is so much more than a place where grieving children come to heal. We change lives. As the sole provider in South Texas of grief support programs for children through young adulthood, we wholeheartedly devote ourselves to addressing the grief and loss needs of children from every culture and social circumstance to help them heal and move forward. We believe that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinctive approach to healing. Our goal is to help children and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one.
