It's Report Card Time

Did you know that reported cases of child abuse increase immediately after report cards are released? This is a time of increased stress for both the parent and the child.

Each November, The Family Tree provides resources to local principals, teachers, guidance counselors and parents to reverse the trend of harsh discipline for bad grades. Our free Parenting HelpLine, a crisis line available to parents 24/7, is always available for parents who feel at the end of their rope. The below tips are also shared at local fairs and through radio and TV PSAs.
