Navigating Transitions

A four-session course for parents in Dacorum, with activities to use at home

Children will face many transitions throughout their lives.
Change and uncertainty is something we can help them learn to navigate.

How do we support children to deal well with transition?

Whether the move is from primary to secondary, to a new school or setting, or to a new teacher or class. It can be an anxious time for parents. The way you approach the changes your children face can be the difference between a stressful or a manageable transition. Knowing how best to manage your own emotions, worries and actions is vital for supporting children in the best possible way.

The course explores how to support children and young people to face change and uncertainty with mental resilience. 

Activities are provided to use at home to encourage a growth mindset.

What parents say

“I’ve tried some of the ideas and it does really make you think about how you react. It has changed the way I think about change!”

“I learned a lot during these sessions not only to help my child but also anyone I know. These sessions really show useful supportive and positive ways to understand our relationship with ourselves as well as our children.”
