think about ways that child care professionals and community members can work
in support of families that encounter such challenges. The second part of your
project should describe advocacy strategies that work in support of parents and
infants who experience the kinds of challenges that you describe in the first
part of your project. With the specific challenges you’ve described in the
first part of your project in mind, develop the second part by considering the
kind of support do families that face these challenges need the most?
roles can child care professions take on in supporting families that face
