Helping children cope with their fears, anxieties, feeling of loss, mourning, the “unknown” and other types of situations that lead to suffering, pain and anguish often involve parents, educators, family and friends, in situations of great questioning: how can we help them to come into contact with situations where the feeling of sadness or fear prevails? How to delve into our inner world to understand and give new meaning to certain situations?
Although truth must always prevail, mere exposition of the facts does not necessarily refer to a solution or conciliation in the face of fear, pain, longing, and other feelings. And each situation must be analyzed in its proper place and with care. It should be added to the various possibilities of aid, the time necessary for the process of sentiment to evolve in phases, resulting in opportunities for growth and / or acceptance.
Below, we list some technologies, such as: apps, videos and books, which have offered opportunities for reflection on various themes. Experiences that are playful, interactive and invite reflection. We hope to contribute and count on your suggestions!
