Friendships are a really important part of children’s lives. They’re crucial for mental, physical and emotional health.
It’s normal for children to feel nervous or have anxious feelings school and making new friends. You can help by talking to them about friendships and organising activities where they can meet other children.
While they are young, your child will need your help to spend time with other children outside of school or nursery. There are lots of ways you can support them to make friends.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
