Updated: 11/09/2012 - Local experts want families to know there is help here for families who are stressed during the holidays. The KPC Respite Center offers free relief care for families in El Paso County. While the holidays bring fun, it also brings added stress and sometimes it’s too much for parents. You can find help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling the KPC Respite Center at 719-634-5439. If you need a break and someone to watch for kids so you can get some rest, you can call to register your child beforehand so you can take a few hours for yourself. The Not One More Child Coalition reminds all of us: 1) Parenting is hard; it’s ok and normal to feel frustrated. 2) If you feel yourself becoming frustrated; set your baby down in a safe place and take a break. No baby ever died from crying. 3) Call a responsible friend or relative to come over and babysit to give you a break. 4) Call 1-800-4-A-CHILD for help 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
