At My Friend’s House, our Child and Youth Worker will observe how children play and interact with each other to determine how the abuse has affected them, and work out how to address it. Our approach is very much geared to the specific needs of each child and support is offered through supportive conversations, encouraging self-expression and creativity, establishing routine and unlearning unhealthy behaviours.
Support for Mom is also important. Mom will also be supported by helping her to care for her children as they struggle through their transition.
If you are concerned about your children, call our support line 705 444 2511 or 1-800 265 2511 . Our Child and Youth Worker will arrange to meet with you, provide assistance and connect you with resources in the community that are right for you.
