A book to help your child cope with a home invasion and feel safe again.
Sometimes we assume or think we know what our children are feeling, it is important to allow your child to express what’s scaring him. Is he worried about getting hurt? Is he afraid the burglar might take one of his toys? Try and find out what the underlying fear is and never discount your child’s fears, instead listen and tell your children you understand. Sometimes just talking about it helps, you are showing your willingness to listen.
Robberies are scary for everyone. Helping your child return to normality as soon as possible after the event is critical to his long-term mental and emotional health. Read this book regularly to help him realise that it is ok to be afraid but also important to try and be brave.
