Social 
Connections
----------

Make time to unwind with social connections. There is a great need for friends, family, and neighbors who care. The community can help by providing concrete assistance and opportunities for others to give back to their community.

What it looks like:

Positive relationships that provide emotional, informational, instrumental and spiritual support by:

a) building trusting relationships where parents feel respected and appreciated

b) having friends, family members, neighbors and others who:

  • provide emotional support (affirming parenting skills)

  • provide instrumental support/serve as a resource for parenting information

  • provide spiritual support (providing hope and encouragement)

  • provide an opportunity to engage with others in a positive manner

  • help solve problems

  • help buffer parents from stressors

  • reduce feelings of isolation

  • promote meaningful interactions in a context of mutual trust and respect​​

c) having a sense of connectedness that enables parents to feel secure,            confident and empowered to ''give back'' to others
