How can your stress level affect your child's safety?
Taking care of yourself is a vital part of keeping your child safe. Most
injuries to children occur when parents or caregivers are tired, hungry, or
emotionally drained or are having relationship problems. Other common causes of
family stress include changes in daily routines, moving to a new house, or
expecting another child.
If you feel stressed, get help. Talk to your
doctor or your child's doctor, or see a counselor. Get together regularly with
friends, or join a parenting group.
