Support for Families – a New Video
June 3, 2020
I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
-Rosa Parks

The next video in the “From Surviving to Thriving” series is now available at www.exchangepress.com/surviving-to-thriving.

In “Engaging, Assuring and Re-Enrolling Parents,” you will find segments on families’ experiences with sheltering at home; ideas for ways to stay engaged with families; helpful strategies for re-opening and re-enrolling; and advice from experts in our field about ways to address parents’ fears. Many thanks to Hinge Brokers, Video Active Productions, Roger Neugebauer and Dan Huber, for partnering with Exchange to provide these complimentary resources.

Another resource to help you support families is Art of Leadership: Engaging Families in Early Childhood Organizations. Here’s an excerpt (written by Margie Carter), that focuses on communicating with parents: “It seems like staff and families could be a mutual support system for each other; but instead, they typically have complaints and irritations with each other. There is a genuine dissatisfaction with the level of communication between them. To be sure, there are exceptions…but that’s what they are: exceptions…

At the heart of these mutual frustrations is genuine desire to know what’s happening on the other end, along with the parent and caregiver’s need to be understood, appreciated, and respected.”
