A new social scene can be difficult for children of all ages. Help your child adjust to new situations by encouraging open communication, supporting their transition, acknowledging your own difficulties, and working together. If your child is not adjusting, reassure them about their strengths and help put this experience in the broader perspective of all his social connections.
When I started my 12-week Positive Parenting Program, I began to realize what it meant to be a good parent. I kept going to the classes and each week I learned new ways to raise my son. Before long, my friends at The Family Tree had helped me figure out my strengths and find the confidence to use them. For the first time, I saw the possibilities of a happy, healthy future with my son.
