Parents have been doing it forever; more broadly speaking, caregivers of kids have been doing it forever.
It’s how we support them. It’s also how we support each other. Chip in; come through when needed; be a go-to person, reliable, some one others can count on. Someone your kids can count on.
What happens next? Kids feel that sense of continuity and security. They feel the stability, they feel safe. And when this is so, children thrive.
It’s all in the hand-off.
