They are handing out child stress kits to parents so they wont abuse their kids. Toys and candy. How (and who) would that help?

In brief: Who has the stress?
If the kids are stressed, then a kit with appropriate toys and activities might help them. If the parents are stressed, then giving the kids something to do might help briefly.
However, in the long run, other steps must be taken. There are many resources online and in most communities. You may also continue to ask our ht experts in pediatrics, child psychiatry, psychiatry, clinical psychology, fp.
