Importance of Tradition - This Is Us : 2 hour gathering for adults
The Rag Doll Gift, a children’s picture book, is a gentle story about the strength of family, the comfort of tradition, and the boundlessness of love. Research shows that traditions are one of the three pillars of strong, healthy families. Traditions are behaviors and routines that give a family it's identity and purpose; they pass through generations connecting us and giving us all a sense of belonging. Reading, presentation and discussion for parents, grandparents and any adult who loves a child!
Care & Comfort : 2 hour gathering for adults
Children in grief need care and comfort. Children’s literature can help. High quality picture books dealing with loss can open doors to conversation and provide space for healing in a natural comforting way. We will read some of these books, discuss methods for sharing them with children, and explore activities that may provide extended comfort.
