RESOURCES TO HELP YOU OUT AND WAYS FOR YOU TO CONNECT
Parenting, teaching, and helping kids with concerning behaviors can feel isolating, frustrating, thankless. And we’re going to do everything we can to ensure that you don’t feel that way anymore. Through our Facebook groups, we’re going to connect with you with others in similar situations. Through our podcasts, conferences, and other resources, we’re going to support you and help you learn more. We’ll keep you up-to-date with our newsletter (sign up below). And there’s even a section for kids! We invite you to become part of the village.

OUR PARENTING DURING THE PANDEMIC SURVEY
Very few caregivers and kids have been spared the stress, anxiety, upheaval, frustrations, and sometimes tragic aspects of the pandemic. It’s been really hard on almost everyone. In the Lives in the Balance Parenting During the Pandemic Survey — conducted with a large sample of parents in late 2020 — we found that parents of kids with concerning behaviors have been hit especially hard, reporting higher levels of stress, greater burnout, and a less optimistic view about their children’s futures than parents of children who do not exhibit concerning behavior. Read more about our findings by clicking below. And here’s an article from The Boston Globe that may be helpful.
Being a kid with concerning behaviors is no fun, and the caregivers of those kids aren’t exactly living the dream either. But sometimes a little humor can go a long way. So we’ve created some comics to perhaps bring a smile to your face, give you some perspective, and help you get back into the game. Click any comic to download a printable 8×10 PDF version.
