It's so important to us that all our caregivers are equipped with the tools they need to raise our children with love, respect and support. As such, the focus of this month’s assistants’ training was self-esteem and how to build it within the child. Our programme team spoke about positive reinforcement, showing interest, assigning responsibility and understanding that each child is unique.
Our foster mothers also recently took part in a workshop discussing sexuality and how to handle any issues or questions their children may have regarding their bodies, relationships, communication, consent, sexual health and safety. The feedback from our mothers was that this workshop was very insightful, and they greatly appreciated the support and guidance in how to approach this topic with the children in their care.
