This is a service provided by Caminhos da Infância. It aims at supporting parents and caretakers with information, counseling and training on parenthood.
No one knows it all. And sometimes, intuition is not enough! Being a parent is not easy!
This is not about writing an exact prescription (for there is none!), but about informing and supporting caretakers to take their part in a unique story – childhood.
1. What is a parent counseling session? And why?
These sessions provide you with the space and time to think about parenting and development and foster your parenting skills and your relation with your children; Have you ever doubted a certain practice or how to deal with a development issue of your child? There is no single formula, no unique response, no magical and instant solution.
In this space, we simply want to support parents/caretakers in their education challenge.
2. When should I schedule a session?
Whenever you want or feel the need to.
3. Are these individual or group sessions?
These sessions are individual, and they can target one or both parents/caretakers at the same time. Sessions will adapt to parents/caretakers’ expectations and needs.
4. What is the cost of a session?
These sessions are free of charge. They are in line with Caminhos da Infância’s goal to support parents/caretakers in protecting families and children.
5. How long do they last?
It all depends on parents/caretakers’ expectations and needs.
6. Who can apply for counseling?
7. How can I schedule an appointment?
