Connection and Belonging

For children and adults, connection can feel positive, negative, or more often a mix of both. Finding, building and sustaining connection that makes us feel we belong can be a challenge for many of us, especially in tough times when we might need it most. And when we are caring for children, we have their ideas and needs for connection and belonging to consider as well.

We want you to know you and your children are worthy of connections that make you feel valued; that help your parenting and support your family to navigate everyday life, along with the tough times when the odds are stacked against you.

This collection of resources has been created by families who’ve been through tough times to spark hope and new ideas for finding and sustaining a sense of belonging. Whether your connections are…

  • within your family
  • beyond your family
  • in person or virtually; or
  • with people, places, creatures, characters or ancestors…

You know what fits best for you and your family – and we’re right here with you.

We hope some of these ideas resonate with you, and you can try the ones that feel right for you and your family.
