Most crises can be prevented if you can meet children’s needs and help them successfully cope with stressful situations. Through your relationships with children, you assist them in learning and practicing new skills and help them feel safe. By intentionally using yourself, you help them overcome the adversity in their lives. Indeed, the most important tool you have in helping children grow, develop and thrive is yourself.
