Top Tips for Helping A Child Join Your Family

First meetings and moving your child in to join your family can be among the most important in helping a child, especially a traumatised one, settle well.

COECT expert Jane Mitchell knows from personal experience about the pitfalls and gives clear and essential advice in this podcast on how to handle both these important occasions.

Her words of wisdom centre around understanding what is going through the mind of the child based on their previous experiences - which might have taught them to be very wary indeed of adults. But parents also need to understand their own mindset and how they might need to take a step back and reduce their expectations.
