OKLAHOMA CAPITOL -- Being a parent is the hardest job, especially during the holidays. Between fighting crowds at the mall, sewing costumes for the Christmas play, baking cookies and mailing cards, most parents have run out of patience. It’s times like these that many parents just need someone who cares to listen without giving advice. For times like these, the Parenting Helpline is there, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
When you call the Parenting Helpline at 1-877-446-6865, you will reach someone who knows how to listen without judging, who cares about families, wants to help and does not want to interfere. The volunteers at the Parenting Helpline realize that there are times when a parent’s patience runs out, everything they’ve tried has failed and they’re sick or tired, but their kids still need attention.
Resources are also available through the Parenting Helpline. With one call you can receive books and pamphlets to help you with some of the challenges of parenting on such topics as caring for infants and toddlers, developmental stages, discipline and guidance and common concerns like single-parenting, divorce or bed-wetting. The volunteers at the Parenting Helpline will also give you information about resources and agencies in your area.
No matter where you live in Oklahoma, the Parenting Helpline can assist you in finding help. Everyone needs help with the tough jobs. When you need help, call 1-877-446-6865.
