There have been countless (and often conflicting) news stories in recent weeks about immigration in the United States. In our networks, the discussion–for years–has simply focused on how we can best care for and support these families. What is it like to be an immigrant and a parent? What are the unique fears, challenges, and needs faced by these families?
Please consider sharing our resources with the professionals and parents in your own networks:
- Read about Support for Immigrant Parents on SCAN’s Parent Resource Center
- Read about Reunification on SCAN’s Parent Resource Center
- Listen to our Parenting Today / iHeartRadio show on Helping Immigrant Parents, with special guest Shirley Jones from Hispanics Against Child Abuse and Neglect
- Listen to our Parenting Today / iHeartRadio show on Reunification, with special guest Robin Hamby from Fairfax County Public Schools’s Immigrant Family Reunification Program
We also highly recommend browsing our new Parent Connection Resource Guide for parenting classes and support groups for parents facing immigration and reunification.
