Speech Bubble Background

“Thank you so much for the little encouragements you send out. I sent the one about not having to be perfect to my families and I got so many responses saying how much they had appreciated it and needed to hear that. And usually I hardly get responses to my messages, so that definitely means something.”

Interpersonal Conflict

At the sharpest end of interpersonal conflict is Domestic Abuse. There is already evidence to suggest that rates of domestic abuse are increasing during the current Covid-19 situation, with some police forces in England already noticing an increase in reports of domestic abuse.

Download this resource for guidance on how to answer these questions:

  • How do we, as the church, gauge how serious a situation is?
  • What about if it is not Domestic Abuse but an escalation of parental conflict?
  • How we can we help parents through this stressful period?

Routines

Children without routines tend to cry a lot, be fussy and sleep badly at night.

Routines help children feel secure, understand how the world works and provide structure to their day; and they also help keep our family life predictable, calm and organised.

For a lot of us, we will need to create new routines, here is a helpful guide to creating a routine.

Rewards

Rewards can be a good way of encouraging new behaviours or behaviours that a child finds difficult to master.

Rewards are not the solution to our children’s emotional challenges and struggles, but they can help in the short term, as they encourage positive behavioural habits.
