Ways to Process

Advice for Salvaging Damaged Family Treasures
Read this After the Fire Article

Some thoughts on how to process the tragic fires with our kids:

  • Feelings: share feelings and label the losses...talk it out without obsessing on it.
  • Limit Media: as much as you can, take a break from news coverage as a family.
  • Family is Safe: reassure them that your family is a safe place...and even plan some family favorites over the next few days and weeks.
  • Future Plans: make future plans which helps them know that life goes on and there are things to look forward to.
  • Maintain Routines: structure and schedule helps kids (and adults!) feel more stable.
  • Reframe from the Tragedy: talk about the helpers that are doing so much good, and the massive response effort underway for our protection.
  • Self-care: model doing things you love that serve as outlets for stress and bring joy (ski, crafts, etc).
  • Return: gradually return to normal things...trying not to live in fear.
  • Serve: Look for ways to help those in need, and join the efforts (even little acts of kindness matter!).
