6 Family Buddy

 

Pending in-person gathering

Buddies will enjoy helping in modest ways, whether the task be interesting and fun or just incredibly helpful. All mutually-agreed upon tasks can be considered.

The buddy should have an open conversation with the parent/caregiver they are supporting about expectations and boundaries.  Examples of ways to help-

  1. In the dining hall, a buddy might go get drinks while the parent sits with a child at the table. Conversely, a buddy could sit with a child while the parent goes to get food or drinks.
  2. A buddy might agree to pick up a child from Kidstitute on one or two days because the caregiver is leading a longer workshop or class.
