Great Ways to Help Kids Process Scary Events

If you’ve ever wondered how to help your child process frightening events, don’t miss episode #6 of my podcast and this great interview with Robyn Gobbel.

Robyn is a therapist whose clinical practice is focused exclusively on working with families of children who have experienced a history of toxic stress and complex trauma.

How should we talk to our kids about scary events in the world? And what if we’re actually afraid too? Robyn answers the question, “Should we fake it till you make it?”

She also gives tips for calming ourselves and gives us a great example of how to help kids process traumatic events.

I got some great ideas for my family and I know you will too.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
