Resources Available for Overwhelmed Parents

Having a baby or small child can sometimes be overwhelming for any parent, and there are many resources out there to help when times become frustrating.

OASIS Family Resource Center in Cadillac says there are a number of techniques they teach to calm parents.

They say putting a crying child in their crib or bed, and then removing yourself from the situation will help ease the tension.

OASIS says they also distribute a free DVD that has tips to help soothe a crying baby.

They say if a parent doesn't feel as though they can care for their child, they can be dropped off at a fire department, police department, or hospital.
