Family communication challenges

April 17th, 2008 Posted in Home Visiting Strategies, Partnering with Families

The following case study presented by an early start home visitor is not an uncommon scenario.  What questions does this situation bring up for you as a home visitor?

My agency provides infant/preschool mental health services in a home visiting setting. I am working with a family in which the child lives with both parents and a grandmother at home. The child’s mother has developmental delays.  Based on my observation, the grandmother directs everyone in the household.  The child’s mother and father do not always agree with the grandmother and this causes bickering in the household with communication sometimes becoming hostile.  I am trying to address this at our visits.

    each time i used to read smaller articles or reviews which
    as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading at this place.

    In this great design of things you actually receive an A+ just for hard work. Exactly where you confused us ended up being in all the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more correct here. Having said that, permit me tell you what did work. The writing is certainly pretty persuasive and this is probably the reason why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can easily notice the leaps in logic you make, I am not really sure of just how you appear to unite your ideas which help to make the actual final result. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position but hope in the near future you actually connect your dots much better.

    Hey great website! Does running a blog such as this

    understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyway, should you have any recommendations or tips
    for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just had to ask.
    Thank you!
