How to Respond to a Child

The most important thing you can do is believe the child. Be mindful of your reaction and body language. We never want to make a child feel as though they are in trouble or they are at fault. Thank the child. Tell them they did the right thing by coming to you. Don’t make promises. There are many circumstances that will be outside of our control. Don’t blame anyone involved, especially the child.
