Why are you visiting me?  My child needs the help.

Often with children’s difficulties, their caregivers are in the best place to help. Caregivers are more accessible to children and can provide the environment children need to progress and develop.

Children’s attachment relates to more than just relationships. It is within a nurturing relationship that children begin to explore the world and develop their understanding of emotions and how to behave. Sometimes, children miss out on some of the steps to developing their skills for managing their behaviour, their fears or understanding the world.

Caregivers can help to provide children with the support they need to fill in the gaps in their learning. This can mean giving children care which is slightly different to that which comes naturally, using more talking about feelings and reading children’s silent messages.
