Parents and their children three years and younger can let go at "zupf.t" and will be picked up again. For mothers, there is for example therapeutic consulting in the form of individual or group meetings to allow them to work out their problems and bad childhood memories in peace. During that time, the children are in the care of experienced teachers. The group meets once a week, with the group size being kept deliberately small to enable the teachers to address the individual questions of the mothers in optimal fashion.
They also have the opportunity to learn relaxation techniques so as to better handle the stress of everyday life. For many mothers from difficult social backgrounds, the conversations with other women in the group are the first friendly contact in a long time.
In the long term, these measures are to enable the children to grow up in good physical and mental health. The goal is to spare them from having to witness at home how violence and despair dominate life. The program reached about 50 families last year. Daimler supports the work in the zupf.t project and the establishment of a play area for the littlest ones with a donation of 5,200 euros.
