For Your Information


PARENTING TIP

Encourage family activities. Spending time together as a family helps foster the parent/child relationship and helps children feel more safe and accepted, which helps them develop into strong, confident and independent individuals. Suggestions: Plan a picnic, movie night, family dinner, game night or vacation.

BETTER PROBLEM SOLVING FOR COUPLES

If you find that you and your partner are going around and around on the same problem without a solution – rather than opposing each other – make a commitment to each other to be on the same team. When you work together to problem solve and be on the same team to determine an acceptable compromise, you have a real chance of finding a solution that is acceptable to both of you.

GOOD HEALTH: HOW IMPORTANT IS ATTITUDE?

Burn patients who have a positive attitude recover more quickly and completely than patients who do not. The patient’s degree of optimism and active involvement in their recovery is a better indicator of how well he/she will recover than is the size or severity of the burn.
