Coping Skills are tools and techniques a person can use to help handle difficult emotions, decrease stress, and increase mental wellbeing. In short, coping skills are things we do, to change the way we feel.  Coping Skills are very person specific. Something that helps one person to cope well, may have little effect on another. Often experimentation is needed to find coping skills that work for us.  Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
