Parenting

There is no more important resource for a child than an adult who is focused on supporting her social, emotional and physical well-being. However, parenting young children, particularly if they have experienced trauma, neglect or other difficulties, can be challenging.

Even though the answers about what works are different for every child, the questions parents have about how best to support their children are often very similar. The resources here are intended to guide adults in being present, available, consistent and responsive to young children in order to support their healthy development and their mental health.
