(On My Mind) Working with our kids' fear The Bold as Love Podcast

    • Kids & Family

The other night, when my daughter was afraid of a house fire after an apartment block caught on fire in our little town, I realized that trying to talk her out of her fear wouldn't be helpful. Her fear didn't match what was actually happening around her and it was keeping her awake.  Fear is a feeling of trapped, so we got creative and together worked with her fear in a way that helped bring her imagination and creativity online. I'll share how the experience helped her to regulate her own fear response.
