Sydney’s Jewish House and JH Kids are promoting the ‘Always Together Program’ to help children’s anxiety around spending time away from their parents as they start or return to school.

Families received corresponding keychains that children can attach to their school bags and parents to their own keys or bags. This keyring shows a link between the child and parent/s, so they can be reminded that they are ‘always together’.

Research shows that children’s socioemotional well-being is critical to school success, and attachment is the foundation for that. It is shown that attachment provides a feeling of security, and enables children to explore their surroundings freely. Research indicated that secure children have more harmonious and intimate friendships, show more empathy towards peers, are more well-liked by other children, and are better regulators of their emotions.

Starting this month, JH Kids is running an 8-week ‘Circle of Security’ program designed for parents and carers of children aged 0-12, who want to strengthen their bonds with their children, while also supporting their children to build secure relationships, manage their emotions, and enhance their self-esteem.
