Parents Anonymous

a self-help group for parents who have abused their children or who feel that they are prone to maltreat them. The organization offers support and guidance, provides a forum for discussing mutual problems, and furnishes a distressed parent with a positive mechanism for coping with anger by talking to another member rather than by releasing his or her emotions on the child. See also child abuse.
