What is needed to support children’s transitions?

❝As recognised in effective communication and child development, it is important to understand a child or young person in the context of their life, to recognise and understand the impact of any transitions they may be going through. It is also vital to recognise the role of parents and carers in supporting children at points of transition and to understand the need for reassurance, advice and support that parents and carers may express at

these points.❞ (DfES 2005:16)

Common Core of Skills and Knowledge for the Children’s Workforce.

  • Strong social support networks.
  • The presence of at least one unconditionally supportive parent or parent substitute.
  • A committed mentor or other person from outside the family.
  • Positive school experiences.
  • A sense of mastery and a belief that one’s own efforts can make a difference.
  • A range of extra-curricular activities that promote the learning of competencies and emotional maturity.
  • The capacity to re-frame adversities so that the beneficial as well as the damaging effects are recognised.
  • The ability – or opportunity – to "make a difference" by, for example, helping others through volunteering, or undertaking part time work.
  • Exposure to challenging situations which provide opportunities to develop both problem-solving abilities and emotional coping skills.
