Parent & Children Overview

Parents and Children

At times, there can be so much pressure on families and children. Parents want to do the best they can to nurture and respond to the needs of their children, but life can throw families and children some wobbly or traumatic things along the way.

It’s important that children learn that it is ok to speak up and ask for help at times when they need it. A responsive helper can assist a child to identify their problem, work together to come up with solutions to try and then persist to keep working away at a problem. In short, we like to help children to be safe and learn how to bounce back when things get tough. We also like to help families and carers to assist the child to build their own skills along the way.
