Help Children Express What They Are Feeling
Our friends at Emma's Place, licensed grief counselors who work with children, have developed this video to help you get through this time and communicate more effectively with your kids, especially when they may be acting out.
A Message From Emma's Place
"This is a time for patience and understanding. Please watch the attached video, just a few minutes long, which show us ways in which we can get our children to express what they are feeling, what they miss, and what they are thinking during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Children won't always come out and say how they are feeling but often will express themselves through pictures, words, and drawings."CGT
Testimonial from Lorie Honor:
"When my brother died, Emma' s Place was an essential part of my family's healing and coping. My sons, now 23 and 20 very much remember and reflect on their grief sessions that helped them as young children. You never forget that kind of loving care. After years in a church basement, Emma's Place has a home at Snug Harbor. I hope you never have a reason to use their services but that you will offer a donation for those in our community who do." L.H.
Testimonial From Fran S. Newman:
"Emma's Place-Staten Island Grief & Loss Center for Children and Families is absolutely a great place! My granddaughter is Emma and she has made amazing breakthroughs going through her grief and loss process. We needed this on Staten Island! Thanks to all who have been a part of helping Emma and still are helping Emma get through some rough times. I am forever grateful."
