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.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
