Dennis the Menace: Coping with Family Stress

Coping with Family Stress

Dennis the Menace: Coping with Family Stress

I have been given permission by Mental Health America (formally known as, National Mental Health Association) to post the entire Booklet. Thank you Antionette. She was the lovely young lady who assisted me today in that permission.

I hope you find the an enjoyable way to reduce your Family Stress. This was originally published and put in National newspapers in 1981. I have kept my copy, that I now share with you.

I will be transcribing the basic text, not the cartoon text that goes with the photographs on each page. The comic strip and words work best as a unit.

Stress is not a Disease

Stress is not a Disease

STRESS

Is not a disease. Stress is normal. Stress is a part of our lives… Where we live, where we work, and even where we play.

When children are involved, the tension is magnified. Parents can get very angry and sometimes everyone suffers.

WE PARENTS

Must recognize how stress affects our families and learn to cope with it. Because children see and react to their world differently, they often cause stress to their parents. The question is: How to handle family stress? Here are some suggestions…

 

A Reminder or Two

A Reminder or Two

A REMINDER …

We can’t keep stress out of our lives, but showing affection is a way to reduce stress. We can let our children know that we love them…OFTEN!

…OR TWO.

Youngsters learn by example. Our affection for each other can be a lesson-in-living for our children.

 

Stress Point:

Stress Point:

STRESS POINT:

Our frustrations – in trying to get something done, for example, – can spill over and affect the way our children fell about themselves.

A Solution:

A Solution:

A SOLUTION:

When children feel neglected, they may go to extremes to get our attention. If we can’t include them in what we’re doing, we can explain to them that we’ll get together with them when we’re free to do so.

Stress Point #2:

Stress Point #2:

STRESS POINT:

When children are deeply involved in some activity, it may be literally impossible for them to pay attention to us.

 

A  Solution #2:

A Solution #2:

A SOLUTION:

We need to pause and reflect when we get upset at our children – – BEFORE we act.

 

Stress Point #3:

Stress Point #3:

STRESS POINT:

Probably more meals are ruined at the table than on the stove. Our nagging might be impolite as their sloppy eating.

 

A Solution #3

A Solution #3

A SOLUTION:

Even mother puts her elbows on the table occasionally! It takes time for youngsters to become adults – in table manners as in everything else. And they probably  learn more from what we do than what we say.

 

Stress Point #4

Stress Point #4

 

STRESS POINT:

Being a parent means a lot of sharing and not a lot of time alone. Dads can find their quiet times… For mothers it may not be so easy.

 

Solution #4

Solution #4

A SOLUTION:

We can give each other a break. It’s important to have some time alone if we expect to be able to cope with stress.

 

Stress Point #5

Stress Point #5

STRESS POINT:

Stress often flares up when children won’t cooperate… Take their own sweet time…Won’t do what they’re told…

 

Solution #5

Solution #5

A SOLUTION:

…But sometimes children may surprise us by doing what we want in THEIR OWN WAY.

They can have good ideas, and even when the ideas aren’t so good, there’s no better cure for stress than a good laugh!

 

Stress Point #6

One tip:

ONE TIP…

We shouldn’t be surprised when our “adult” problems cause stress to our children.

…AND ANOTHER

We can share our problems with other parents who have been “though the mill.” We can reach out to a neighbor, pastor, doctor, or relative for support.

 

We can all make it together

We can all make it together

WE CAN ALL MAKE IT TOGETHER WITH EACH OTHER’S HELP.

A message from the Mental Health America (formally known as National Mental Health Association)

This booklet is one part of a national effort to prevent child abuse and neglect. A conservative estimate is that one million children are abused or neglected by their parents or caregivers in this country every year. As many as 2,000 die as a result of maltreatment.

Most child abuse and neglect is not caused by inhuman, hatefuul intent on the part of parents. Rather, it is the result of a combination of factors, including both accumulation of stresses on families and unmet needs of parents for support in coping with their child-rearing responsibilities.

Most child abuse and neglect can be prevented:

~If parents can reach out for the help they need to cope with the stresses in their lives.

~If professionals and agencies that provide services to families can be attentive to families who are having particular difficulties in the demanding task of raising their children.

~If communities can support preventative programs to help families in stress.

Sutton Genealogy Collection: A Legacy – Paying it Forward

A Legacy- Paying it Forward

We will carry Larry Bennett’s legacy forward by transcribing his Sutton Genealogy Collection. He freely gave his passion for research, allowing those who seek their Sutton Roots, a strong starting point.

My transcriptions starts with his Stearns and Nelson families genealogies. They are my Sutton roots through the marriage of my grandparents, Nathan Augustus Stearns and Lillian May Nelson 31 Dec 1920.

Suton Genealogy Collection Introduction

Sutton Genealogy Collection
Introduction

Introduction

Larry Bennett was a remarkable historian and exceptional researcher. He strived for accuracy and left not stone unturned in his quest for historical facts. As chairman of the Sutton Historical Society’s Archives Committee, Larry diligently worked at cataloging the society’s collections stored in the “Blue House.” Through his efforts many new items were added to the collection. Larry’s guidance and expertise will be missed by the Sutton Historical Society.

Larry’s passion was genealogy. He spent countless hours updating the genealogies in the History of Sutton, N.H. by Augusta H. Worthen. He followed family lines from 1890, the year the history was published, to the present. In addition, he researched many new families who moved to Sutton after 1890. Larry freely shared his research with anyone who wanted to discover their ancestors.  His genealogical research is his legacy. The Sutton Historical Society is proud to honor Larry, for it will help those who seek to find their Sutton roots and that is what Larry would want. his work to do.

The collection has been published as Larry had organized it; family sheets arranged in alphabetically in three volumes, Abbott – Frew, Gage – Nye and O’Connell – Youngman, and volumes for the Chadwick family and the Palmer family. There are 1577 family sheets in the collection.

For Larry Bennett

For Larry Bennett

For several years it was our great privilege and pleasure to work with Larry on Monday mornings at Muster Field Farm on the Harvey family papers. Larry was a reliable authority on questions of Sutton genealogies, who lived where, connections between families, and a host of other details he had spent countless hours tracking down from any source that presented itself. We were quite pleased to learn that the Sutton Historical Society had decided to publish Larry’s genealogical work and dedicate it to his memory.

Larry took up Sutton’s genealogical records right where Erastus Wadleigh had left off at the time of his death in 1881. When Augusta Worthen in her 1890 History of Sutton acknowledged Wadleigh’s considerable role in gathering and recording Sutton history, especially the genealogies of the townspeople, she wrote words of praise for him that are strikingly appropriate to Larry:

“The History of Sutton was commenced, but the work had not proceeded far before the discovery was made that it is one thing to put on record facts already within reach, and quite another to find the right answers to all questions of genealogy and descent to which these facts give rise.”

“And here, perhaps, is a good a place as any other to state, for the benefit of all those who are ambitious of entering the field of antiquarian and genealogical research, that no one ever yet entered that field with and adequate conception of the amount of labor involved in the attempt to operate there…. For genealogical research, apparently so dry, once entered upon, becomes the most fascinating of all the literary work, becomes magnetic even in its attractiveness to its pursuer. Very unwillingly, and only under pressure of strong necessity, will the genealogist suspend, even temporarily, his work while searching for   “missing links” in some family chain. The clue he may chance to hold in his hand is so slight, so elusive, has been so difficult to obtain, and yet is of such value if it leads to the result he is working for, with the conviction that,  if he lets it slip, it is lost forever, and no future genealogist will be able to reach it., and yet will blunder for lack of it, – all this makes him cling to it with a miser-like tenacity till he finds the desired link and has got it fairly riveted in its proper place. Not only does the genealogist feel compelled to do his work, but he must do it right.  An assertion based, for lack of proof, upon supposition, or even upon probability, may prove to be a misstatement, which will fatally bewilder and mislead the future historian. For history is forever going on, and the record is by no means completed when the writer of our days lays aside his pen forever.

“Mr. Wadleigh, of course, realized that in succeeding years some other would take up the work where he dropped it, and would make this his life work, the foundation on which to build his own. It was this sense of double responsibility to the past which, to his ear, clamored for remembrance, for recognition, and which was to sit in judgment upon his work, united with a natural honesty and conscientiousness, which, if a man possess it, enters as closely into his literary work as into his business dealings, – it was all this which urged him to use the strictest accuracy of statement rather than fullness of detail. Throughout his entire work there is no possibility of misconception through diffuseness and carelessness.”

Larry was indeed the “some other” who took up the work where Erastus Wadleigh left off. Now Larry, too, has set aside his pen forever, but in his passing he left behind an enduring legacy for the town of Sutton. From many sources he collected fragments of information about townspeople from years gone by and made connections between the fragments. Many a scattered historic detail is now “fairly riveted in its proper place” because of Larry and the work he loved to do.

And years hence – you citizens of Sutton a century from now – there will be “some other” to take up the work where Larry left off. Honor his memory, and be true to his standards for historical integrity.

 

We were proud to call him our friend.

Below is a photo taken by June Stearns Butka of Nathan and Lillian’s gravestone. The other side is Lillian’s lists Lillian’s mother, father and brother. The Nelson Family plot lies next to the wrought iron fence to the left, as you first enter the Millwoods Cemetery. You can’t miss the Rose of Sharon bush next to the marker.
