The world is a big and bewildering place for children. They are vulnerable and reliant upon adults to keep them safe. Your child will not be able to articulate how they’re feeling either. They may not realise that the stress or insecurity they are feeling is because they are outside their comfort zone. At this point they may act out, go really quiet and not interact, cry, cling to you or have a meltdown. It will help you to know that sometimes these behaviours from your child are down to feeling unsafe.
