Do you have a child who has come from a hard place? Do you wish others who interact with your children better understood how to connect with them to help in their healing? Maybe you are frustrated with Sunday School teachers, babysitters, school teachers, parents of your child’s friends, or even some extended family because they just. don’t. get. it.
And while we all know it’s not appropriate to fully disclose a child’s personal story to every person they will encounter, wouldn’t it be nice to make those in their daily or weekly routine aware of general issues and small ways they could make your child feel safe, pushing them towards success?
From the insight and research taken some of the best books on this topic (The Connected Child by Karyn Purvis, The Whole Brained Child by Dan Siegel & Tina Payne Bryson, and The Out-of-Sync Child by Carol Kranowitz), along with information from other ministries, our staff has compiled a short one-page handout to help educate those who interact with your child. It covers a brief overview of the background of children from hard places, physical & sensory consideration, and practical tips & resources.
Adoptive/Foster Parents, this would be great to give to your child’s teacher at the beginning of each year. Churches, what if every Sunday School teacher received this handout to help equip them to meet the individual of the kids in your children’s program?
