When you get together with other families who have children (whether during playgroup, a family reunion, or a weekend barbecue in the backyard), it helps to have strategies for handling some common issues that may occur:
- Separation from the parent or carer
- Aggressive behaviour
- Withdrawn behaviour
- Fights over possession
This way, when upsets arise (and chances are they will at one point or another), both you and the other parents will be able to support each other in handling the situation.
