Secondary Nurturer?

What does that mean? What does that look like?

Think about it for a moment. Who might be a child’s Primary Nurturer (i.e., mom?…dad?…grandma?…foster parent?)?

What would be some of the things you would expect a Secondary Nurturer to do…verses a Primary Nurturer… in a child’s life?

And why might that be important to be aware of when ministering to and/or discipling “at-risk families?”

  1. To see what KidTrek believes a Secondary Nurturer can be and the training involved read our White Paper on Secondary Nurturers at http://www.kidtrek.org

    I’d love to know what you think!

  2. a secondary nurturer comes alongside the primary nurturer. They become mom’s/primary nurturer’s best friend. It’s about helping the whole family…not JUST the child. In helping the whole family…you do help the child. It’s listening, observing, praying, loving. You cannot just go in and try to take over and tell the primary nurturer what needs to change…and do this or that…but to share with, ask questions, spend time with through conversation, meals, coffee, etc. It’s making them a part of your family. This all takes time…it’s about patience. 🙂
