“We encourage our kids to cool down before they enter into engagements with one another and with other people. She’ll walk around and cool down, generally she’ll walk out into the park, she’ll be gone maybe 30 minutes or an hour, she’ll come back home and we can talk about maybe what it is that’s bothering her and we work through tat okay,” said Bill Harvey, Christine’s father.
