What Parents and Carers say

I came across an old diary recently where I say how impossible it is with my son and how he seems to hate me. I have always struggled with him and his anger.

However, since working with Capa, our relationship has improved massively.

What to expect when working with Capa

Our vision statement  at Capa is:

 

No family feels alone in their experience of a child who uses harmful behaviours in the

home, that causes distress, isolation and hopelessness and they can easily access the

support they need to improve their family situation.

 

Together we will:

  • Share strategies for change
  • Offer Specialist support
  • Increase your confidence to parent
  • Offer 121 for the WHOLE family including siblings 
  • Help reduce Isolation
  • Help build positive healthy relationships with your child

 

 

 

Living in fear of your child can feel exhausting and upsetting – we want to help.

Everyone has the right to feel safe in their home.

If you are in fear of being hurt or someone in the house being hurt call 999.

​It is hard to imagine calling the police on your child. Many parents we work with are, understandably, confused and scared about this. However, you and anyone else in the home have the right to feel safe.

Calling the police is not easy and may not be the answer for you but keeping safe is. The police DO NOT want to criminalise your child – this is about you making a very clear stance that ABUSE and VIOLENCE is not acceptable behaviour.

You are giving a clear message to your child that they also have the right to be safe and you are protecting them. 

What to do if your child is being aggressive?

Capa First Icon

If it is safe to do so stay with your child and validate their feelings.

Capa First Icon

"I can see you are angry and you are allowed to be angry, but it is not okay to hit me/damage things".

Capa First Icon

Talking too much to anyone who is in a heightened emotional state can 'fall of deaf ears', they are unlikely to be able to respond in a calm way.

Capa First Icon

Stay present (if safe) and use few words to let your child know you are there. Continue to validate feelings, or if this escalates remain quiet.

Capa First Icon

Make sure you have your phone with you so you can contact the police or a friend for help and support.

Capa First Icon

Don't try to reason at this point with your child or demand they stop.

If you are in danger or fear for anyone in the home call the police.
