Most victims of child incest suffer from guilt, shame and post traumatic stress disorder which can trigger thoughts and feelings that transport the victim back to the abuse even later on in life. In this article, you'll learn some important facts about incest. You'll also get an inside look into how incest has impacted the quality of life of an adult survivor, as well as get the chance to share your thoughts and feelings or stories of your own ordeal.

How to Stop Tantrums

Here's a question from the concerned mother of a toddler:

My 19 month old toddler has been getting in the habit of throwing himself (hard) on the ground and screaming and crying over the smallest things. Say for instance, when we brush his teeth. We brush his teeth several times a day...first I brush them for him (to make sure they are cleaned properly) then I let him have the brush to finish them up and practice.
