Parenting can be tough. Many parents in our community are facing the compounding impacts of social or economic disadvantage, isolation, stress, anxiety and depression. It's important to keep in touch with community networks like parent groups, play groups and your Maternal & Child Health nurse.
At Tweddle, we're gathering resources to help guide you through the challenging times. It's important though to consult a health professional if you or your child are feeling unwell or you feel you aren't coping as well as you'd like. Help is available.
Keep in touch with us via facebook and twitter and we'll let you know when we add to this section. We'll have tips, links, books we love and fact sheets.
Circle Of Security - animation
This Circle of security video illustrates how we can give a child the confidence and freedom to explore their world and provide a strong, kind, safe and secure base. Tune into your child and their cues and they will explore their world knowing that they can return to you for comfort, security and understanding.
