The care and wellbeing of our students and parents is our first and foremost priority here at Parklands. When emergencies happen everyone in our community can be affected and children and young people need support from parents, carers and other family members.
Children and young people may need help to understand what is going on in a way that is appropriate for their age and development. Parents may need help with setting up routines, maintaining consistency and at times keeping up their own energy to keep up with their students at home.
Remember as parents your wellbeing is incredibly important. We have all seen the videos and demonstrations on airplanes that in the case of an emergency when the oxygen mask falls be sure to put your own mask on first before attending to your child. This is very much the case for parenting. Take time to know what you and your partner need, and meet those needs, so that you are at your best emotionally and cognitively to support your student.
