You, as parents, have a vital and critical role of coming alongside your child/children to assist them in their transition to a new location. Through children’s literature, we will approach the issue of mobility. This session will provide a better understanding of mobility and assist your child’s/children’s adjustment to a new situation. It will provide your child/children the opportunity to express their worries and concerns and help them explore what home means to them.
Some of the basic objectives and concepts in the following lessons have been drawn from ideas presented in New Kid in School: Using Literature to Help Children in Transition by Debra Rader and Linda Harris Sittig.
