Birth to Five Helpline — We can all use a little help!

| April 28, 2020
 
We can all use a little help!
 
It’s been a few weeks now of “stay-at-home” life. We have children home from school and child care, parents working from home, many families find themselves out of work and, on top of this, the news transforms each day before our eyes.
How are we facing these challenges and constant changes to our everyday lives?
 
This is a time when we need one another and reaching out to a friend or family member to say hello can be very helpful. But what else can we do to manage our needs as adults? And what can we do to help and support our young children? If you find yourself having more difficulty than expected, seeking out a professional to talk with is a good idea.
 
At the Birth to Five Helpline, our specialists are highly trained in the skill of listening and understanding the uniqueness of each child and family’s situation. You don’t have to wait for tensions to build or frustration to get the best of you. If you don’t know what to do with everyone being stuck in the house or apartment, let our Helpline staff help you with creative ideas to find a new balance in your household.
 
We also know that many families are facing financial stressors, whether venturing out everyday to an essential job, looking for a new job after losing one or seeking out basic needs for their families. Let our Helpline specialists support you with some calming techniques and strategies that families can use when confronted with these challenging tasks.
 
The Birth to Five Helpline is here to support you – families, caregivers and professionals – anyone who has young children in their lives. We can find our way through this together!
