We need to reimagine support for caregivers.
Raising a child today often means handling the pressure to be the perfect parent with little outside support. Daily struggles are even more challenging if parents live in cities, conflict zones or low-income communities.
From expert analysis to personal perspectives, we begin to explore the support parents need to navigate their child’s first years of life – a period where their entire life also changes. The 24 articles in this journal offer insight from diverse traditions, policies, programmes and people. Together, they show why we need a person-first approach to caregiving and how we can get there, so that caregivers, children and entire communities flourish.
