Making Connections
Author: Judith A. Myers-Walls, Ph.D., CFLE 

Caring for children is hard work for childcare providers and for parents. Working together as partners can make the task easier. There are many ideas on this Web site to help you work better with parents. There are some problems that need other kinds of help, though. Sometimes the parents need the help of a professional. Sometimes you both need to know things that are not covered here.

It can be very hard to find the right kind of help when you need it. Sometimes you cannot find anyone or anything to help. At other times, there are so many choices that you do not know what to do.

When parents need help, it is hard to know how to talk to them about it. It can be awkward to tell them that you think they need help. Then it can be hard to connect them with the help.

This section gives you links to many sources of help. It also provides information about judging the quality of support. There are suggestions for talking with parents, too.
