What do you say to a child who is angry at your house?
What do children do when they’re angry?
These are questions that are being asked by parents around the world.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a report that addresses the growing issue of child abuse in the home.
It looks at what’s happening in our schools, in our homes, and it offers some ideas about how we can help.
The report, released Tuesday, offers a clear message: Children are a source of pain and concern.
The authors recommend that parents be aware of the child’s emotional state and make sure they’re not too close.
They say children can be very hurt by adults, especially adults who have hurt them.
Parents are the most powerful source of empathy in our society.
“We’ve got to recognize that, when kids are angry, they’re hurting others,” said Dr. Kathleen R. Pappas, chair of the department of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
So that’s the first thing that you do. “
And they’re hurt by us.
So that’s the first thing that you do.
You try to help.”
Dr. Pindi L. Sommers, executive director of the National Council on Children, said the report is a wake-up call to parents.
She noted that children can feel very hurt in the world, and they need a good grounding in their own emotional state.
“If parents are not emotionally grounded, then they’re going to be really hurt when they see a child with severe emotional distress or severe anger,” she said.
The APA study, “Children and Their Relationships,” was sponsored by the American Academy on Aging.
