Do you notice that the parents, children and families you support struggle with issues related to separation (the commencement of daycare or school, shuffling between parents and or homes, feeling responsible for parents’ feelings or actions, the proximity of parents, feeling too much to handle)? We already know, the most common issue plaguing our little people today is anxiety, and with anxiety comes a host of challenges. When facing separation from a parent or caregiver, the natural feelings that are generated can impact the lives of our little people in so many ways, and they can take a significant toll on both parent and child.
Westcoast Parent Child Connections believe that parents and caregivers are doing their absolute best, that they know their children best, and by helping to strengthen and build a solid foundation of understanding of separation, parents and caregivers can feel better equipped and more confident when facing it. The workshop that we offer provides foster parents/parents/caregivers with the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively manage these challenges and face separation with increased ease.
