What can connection do?

For three decades, Hand in Hand Parenting’s trauma-informed approach has contributed to children’s well-being and recovery from adversity. This pioneering work is now recognized with an evidence-based designation from the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs so Hand in Hand is able to provide professional development to early care and education professionals on the frontlines of the mental health crisis.  

Please give generously to bring support & connection to early-childhood communities.

When my son was a newborn we couldn't lie him flat for the first 6 months of his life. I couldn't leave him for a microsecond. As a new mum I was utterly overwhelmed by him and his needs. I couldn't meet them and meet my own basic needs.

After 4 months I discovered Hand in Hand Parenting. I won't say it was easy, but it got easier with practice.

Now he is 16 months and everyone – I mean EVERYONE – tells me what an amazing child he is. “So chilled.” “So easy going.” We have a beautiful bond that I absolutely treasure and we laugh and play and have so much fun.

I recently heard about the idea of “holding space” for someone and it occurred to me that that's exactly what Hand in Hand Parenting is all about. Holding space for your child and trusting in their inherent good nature. You would never guess we had such a challenging start to our relationship. I can see my son blossoming and I beam with pride and I'm so grateful to have had access to Hand in Hand when I did.
