MY STORY ACORNS FOR THERAPEUTIC PURPOSES

Provide your child with a My Story Acorn Template, a selection of drawing tools,  and a quiet, private place to draw a story about tmemories they would like  to share.  Ask them to be prepared to take their acorns with them when they are ready to talk about the story with you  and your health care provider. 

Meeting with medical professionals offers your child the opportunity to talk with someone who can help them process the toxic emotions associated with traumatic events. The challenging fact is, that  cognitive skills of young children are not yet developed enuogh to fully grasp the long-term repercussions of their experiences.

My Story Acorns allow your child to use their favorite art supplies to tell their stories and express their emotions in pictures and story form. As memories emerge, your child can use a story acorn to journal their experience according to the level of their understanding and in their favorite artistic format.

Unresolved trauma often shows up in negative behaviors that don’t  relate to current circumstances. For instance, extreme anger and frustration with  personal care or household chores can be a signal that your child is experiencing emerging emotions that they don’t know how to express.

Your awareness of and attention to their escalated emotions can be a priceless gift to your child. They will eventually recognize the fact that you have their back, you believe what they are telling you, and you love them enough to pay attention to what they are trying to say to you.

I pray that the use of My Story Acorns will help mend any injuries in your child’s emotions, and help create an unbreakable bond  between you and the child who needs your unconditional and endless love.

Shared with much love, from my house to yours!
