Tips:

Be aware of children’s emotions

Don’t back off and assume it is mum’s role to deal with kids’ emotions. Learn to recognise when your child is feeling sad or frightened.

Tips:

“Being there” with technology

Use technology to have face-to-face chats with your children when you are away from them.
