2. Am I allowed to touch or pick up children when they are distressed?

by Michael Ford last modified 01 Sep, 2015 02:52 PM

Yes, but be sensible. Keep everything in public – a hug in a group is very different to one behind closed doors. Touch should be age appropriate and generally initiated by the child not the worker. Picking up a distressed child is perfectly OK.
