Help Your Young Child Feel Safe and Secure
Signaling safety to our children is a Peace at Home essential principle. It is important to recognize the nature of your own anxious responses and have tools to manage those. A child who feels safe in relation to their parents and caregivers will naturally use social-emotional strategies to problem solve. When you understand how to signal to your child that they are safe, you are better able to protect their mental health. To grow and develop positively, young children need to feel secure. They need family life to remain pleasurable and playful even in uncertain times.
