Family Support Networks
The Federation of Families of SC assists parents of children with emotional, behavioral, or mental health disorders and/or substance abuse establish community parent networks. If you are the parent of a child or adolescent with emotional or behavioral difficulties you may want to consider participating in a family support network. By meeting other parents with similar experiences you know that you are not alone in what you are going through. Whether you have a child acting out at home or in the community by talking back, hitting, yelling, running away, harming themselves or others, being suspended from school or abusing drugs or alcohol you need help and support. Any of these behaviors can be signs that a child is being abused, bullied, or have some other type of problem going on that they don’t know how to handle. You may have a child that has been identified with Attention Deficit Disorder, Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or any other disorder that can cause problem behavior. If you are a parent of child with these difficult behaviors you are probably a parent that often feels you don’t know what to do or where to turn, you may find yourself in crisis or having strong emotions as a result of your child’s behavior. Being part of a network with other families experiencing similar situations at home, in school and with agencies and professionals can be a comforting experience for families who have felt they were the only parents having such an experience with their child.
