Uvalde: Responding to Kids' Needs
I had a coaching session today with a couple who wanted support in case their daughters asked about the shooting in Uvalde.
"These kids shouldn't need to think about this yet."
Watch this video to learn:
- The two skills that perfectly respond to every question and need, without needing to have all the answers or prepare in advance,
- The emotional hangup WE have that gets in the way of being truly helpful in times like these, and
- How to toe the line between protecting our kids from something hard vs. shepherding them through something hard.
In a nutshell, what we have to do now is the eternal work of a parent: taking these pure divine creatures and teaching them how to live earth-side in a world that's not nearly as magical as they deserve.
So how do you do that?
This video is my take on that. What are your thoughts? Send me an email at [email protected]
And if you are ready to talk to me about the whole shebang - how you do that whole "teaching kids to live earth-side" thingee, I am here for you! Set up a Discovery Call and let's do it! I'm ready to chat.
How about YOU? Are you taking care of yourself? This parenting stuff is damn hard when you are scared, traumatized, and confused. What do you need to process and ground yourself? Reach out for help and ask for what you need!
