Free Webinar – Handling Separations with Confidence
Ever found yourself putting off the inevitable separations from your child because you know they will be upset? Are you finding that transitions are hard? Is your child really unhappy about leaving you for short periods? Is your child aggressive, or withdrawn, when you are away from them? Don't know how to handle the heart-wrenching tears?
These challenges may be signs that your child may be carrying separation anxiety.
Feelings about short separations are normal
Separating from loved ones is a normal and important process that begins at birth, and has many phases and stages. Separating from loved ones is a key issue for young children. It is normal for children (and their parents) to have big feelings about being away from one another – even well into the teens.
But it can be hard
But some children get stuck, unable to part from loved ones easily or with confidence. Their feelings become overwhelming & result in behaviours which are unworkable – for both you and your child. These feelings can get in the way of a child’s ability to enjoy life, learn, make friends, and co-operate.
Separations can be a positive experience
These feelings can be planned for, acknowledged, and handled effectively in ways that increase a child’s general confidence and willingness to separate from loved ones. And you can get support, knowing you have a plan and some tools to help.
Join Madeleine Winter to hear about practical ways to help make parting from one another a positive experience.
Madeleine is the parent of a teen who has been using and teaching Hand in Hand for over 30 years. This is what parents have said about her:
“I’ve done a lot of parenting courses, and read a lot of books. In one session, Madeleine communicated a picture of why my children behave as they do which made more sense of what is going on than anything else I’ve come across. She offered practical strategies and approaches that I will go home and try. I’m looking forward to learning more.”

“I liked being reminded that we are all good parents. The talk was structured around our questions and I wish we had longer – I could always take more listening to you, Madeleine. I really enjoyed today’s session.”
