We live in a world where traumatic events are a reality and can happen to any of us unexpectedly. As adults we can find resources to cope and minimize the distress that these events may cause. It is often hard to understand how much of these situations will affect us in the long run so it is really important to address them straight away.
When it comes to children, we fail to understand that despite their size they have very big emotions just as we do but not many coping mechanisms to deal with them. They rely on us for support and guidance and in this post we will share some ideas of how to help the little ones cope and understand traumatic events.
