Workshop Description: Children in childcare can often have differing family dynamics (divorced, separated, parents living apart, grandparent/relative care and multiple drop off/pick up adults…) that make communication among their adult care-givers, and between the child care and families, challenging for all parties involved, which can greatly impact the child in common.
Co-Parenting is ideal when it works, but what do families do when they just can't get along? How do you support families without getting caught in the middle, or worse, add fuel to the flames. Join us for a discussion about the differences between co-parenting and parallel parenting; with tips and tricks for your professional toolbox so you can help families keep the children in the center of the picture.
