Children are challenged by transitions as much as parents. It’s important to come together as a team! Watch the video together, then talk about the strengths and challenges you have as a family. 

  • Reassure your children that you love them no matter what. Remind them that there will be good days and harder days, but that you will always be there for them. 
  • Encourage open and honest conversation. You can provide prompts, such as, “I felt bad because . . . ” or “I was scared when . . .” or “I’m worried about . . . “ 
  • Make sure to give children your complete focus when you talk. Put your cell phones and other devices aside!
