The arrival of a child in a family can cause uncertainty and upheaval for parents.
THE parenting support plays a major role in the City’s early childhood policy. One of the measures put in place is the creation of child-parent meeting placesto offer a listening place and of acknowledgement for the child and the accompanying adult, as well as for pregnant women.
In these structures, the child is recognized as a whole person and adults can meet, exchange, confide, seek help or ask for advice, simple and anonymous way. The reception is free and financial participation is reduced or symbolic.
Early childhood professionals (early childhood educators, psychologists, etc.) are committed to support the adult-child relationship and of value parenting skills. Visiting these spaces makes it possible to fight against family isolation and provide resources for young parents.
