“What if My 3 year old tells me he saw a ghost or monster? How should I respond?
Should I ask him more about what he saw? Or should I divert his attention?”
Sometimes, as parents, you are not sure what the best response would be. You might wonder whether asking the child more would make him/her recollect what he saw and feel scared. On the other hand, will it help him talk it out and feel better?
Well, as therapists, we would vouch for letting him express himself. The reasons for this are many.
