How to Talk to Your Child

How to explain to your young child about going to counseling

Counseling is a safe and fun place to talk about all kinds of feelings.  All of your feeling are ok but some feeling are uncomfortable and powerful.  Sometimes we need help to problem solve and to be in charge of feeling that get really strong. Counseling is fun!  There are fun ways to help to feel better like games, drawing, painting.

The first time we meet with Amie she is going to ask us some questions about the things we like and don’t like.  Her job is to have her ears open to listen and help us learn how to feel better.  How about we go one time to see if we like it, and we can decide if she is the right counselor for us?
