    Coping with challenging behaviors can be very difficult for care partners and family members. Exploring and identifying possible reasons or triggers for these behaviors is the first step in reducing or eliminating the triggers and thus, the subsequent behavior. Remember to give dad some space if needed, ensuring they are safe and others are protected, remain relaxed, speak in a calm, soft tone. Acknowledge dad with phrases such as, “I’m sorry you’re upset” or “I know you are upset. Can I help?”.
