Child Care News for Parents & Carers
March 6, 2019
Welcome, It's International Women's Day on Friday, 8 March, and we consider the ways wider society can support women to achieve this year's theme 'Balance for Better', also the special role of comfort objects in the lives of children.
Ways for working mums to find a better balance
International Women's Day is being celebrated on March 8 and this year's campaign theme is 'Balance for Better'.

The Day highlights the importance of a gender-balance between women and men, but it's also a chance to consider the challenges mums face when balancing child care with the working week.

As such, let's look at some ways that partners, employers, educators and the wider community can help women find a happy equilibrium when it comes to child care and career.
The strong bond
between children and comfort objects
Whether they're cosying up to a velvety blankie or cuddling a flea-bitten dog toy, comfort objects are a positive addition to little people's lives. They have a special way of supporting babies and children as they rest, play and grow; and over time, these well-loved items become part of the family.

Here we look at the child-comforter relationship, with some insights from paediatric and child psychology experts.
