Parents Stree Line

posted Jan 17, 2014, 12:11 PM by Diane Randall

THE PARENTS STRESS LINE is available in Vermont to parents, professionals, and community members for parenting support, resources and referrals. What types of issues do people call about? People call for a variety of different reasons—some are having a particularly difficult day with a child and just need a listening ear, for some it's an ongoing problem and they are wondering where to turn next for more professional assistance. Often, calls have come because of stresses of being a single parent or difficulties dealing with a former partner. Sometimes people call because they want to find out where the nearest parent education programs are located. Or they call because they don't want to abuse their children anymore and are looking for help. Is this a counseling service? The support team is available to provide a listening ear, resources and referrals, but they are not trained counselors. The Stress Line is open Monday -Friday from 9AM - 5PM. The phone number is 1-800-CHILDREN (1-800-244-5373) You can also e-mail  at:
