What is My Parents ‘N’ Me?
Children whose parents have separated may be affected by numerous stressful experiences.
Many children who experience parental separation cope well with the changes over time. However, some children will experience difficulties along the way and require support to help them build resilience.
My Parents ‘N’ Me is a group program to help children to understand their parents’ separation, adapt to changes in the family, and feel safe and comfortable to express themselves.
My Parents ‘N’ Me sessions:
- are age appropriate for children aged six to 10
- allow children to gain more insight into their own approach to painful issues as they freely select a balance between watchfulness and participation in group activities
- give children the opportunity to talk to a neutral person about the changes in their family and share their experiences with other children in similar situations
- can assist children to develop resilience and coping strategies.
