Children living in different settings

Most children live with a parent or parents, with siblings and relatives and with family pets in the family home, but many children do not live with their parents or even with their families. They may live elsewhere through choice or necessity, but whatever the event that causes them to move away from their parents or families, the significance of moving in a child's life can be considerable. This free course, Children living in different settings, will be of interest to anyone who supports children who live away from their families in any capacity.

Free course
