When we talk about Time for Kids, part of it’s strength is that we can all understand the values and the aspiration behind them – the values are true for all of us. We all need these things in order to thrive. We all need that human connection, to be able trust in others, a place we belong, hope and a belief in what we can do.
Time for Parents* encourages us to think how we can use these values to think from the perspective of a parent or carer. How can we support parents/carers to better support the children and young people in their care? If we start to think about these values through those different perspectives we can start that chain reaction.
(*although we say “parents”, we mean this in its widest sense – including carers, guardians, grandparents etc. – i.e. the main caregiver in a child or young person’s life!)
