Processing change with your child

Whether it is a change in your family, a move to a new home, new daycare, etc. it can be overwhelming for a child to go through.  But there is good news, you can help them through those changes and feelings! A few steps to help you navigate: 

  1. Be honest about what is happening
  2. Let your child be upset
  3. Be vulnerable and show your own emotions
  4. Maintain normalcy and help your child to feel in control
  5. Expect the range of emotions that will follow

Every child is going to respond differently, and that’s ok. Your child is learning how to cope and handle their emotions.
