Growing up too soon? A Panel Discussion on the Parentification of Newcomer Children and Youth

Summary:

Parentification refers to children and youth taking on adult roles and responsibilities that are not normative for this age in order to support their parents. When families migrate to a new country, navigating the health and social services system can be complex. As a result, newcomer children and youth often experience taking on tasks that are not typical for for their age.
