The Three C's

Posted on October 22, 2013

The following are suggestions for parents to help themselves and their children in difficult times.

Focus on the Three C’s

1. Comfort

  • Share meals and provide more comfort foods than usual. (Comfort food makes you feel better when you're feeling bad. Most often it is associated with childhood memories - the special food or treat that your Mother or Grandma gave you when you weren't feeling well.)
  • Plan family time – game night, exercise
  • Work on a project
  • Enjoy laughter
  • Reach out to your network of family and friends
  • Engage in activities that are fun, relaxing and pleasant (see Activity tab)

2. Conversation

3. Commitment

  • Set a good example, be calm, do not present your child with your own fears
  • Participate in school and community activities
  • Help your neighbors (do chores or small errands)
  • Reach out supportively to friends and family
  • Be optimistic
  • Contact TLC with any questions or concerns
