Do you notice that the parents, children and families that you support, struggle with issues related to separation (the commencement of child care or school, shuffling between parents and or homes, feeling responsible for parents’ feelings or actions, the proximity of parents, feelings too much to handle)? As we 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. This workshop will provide child care providers and parents with the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively manage these challenges and face separation with ease.
