An issue Doctor G has seen many modern parents grapple with is resilience. It’s so easy to do things for our kids these days, but that doesn’t mean that we should. Building resilience often means kids not automatically getting things their own way – and unfortunately when in-home child care is involved, it can be the Nanny who bears the brunt of the push-back when this happens.
“No matter someone’s background – their education level, their socioeconomic resources, their culture, their religion, their language – no matter what their family looks like in a picture – everybody struggles with parenting.”
I have to admit to feeling quite proud on August 9 when we launched our new Child Protection Policy and accompanying booklet. Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
