Julie Anderson, who took her young children to therapy to deal with grief around the their youngest brother’s drowning, shares why she continued to take her children if for therapy “check ins” through the years, even when things were going well.
“Now is when they need to go to a therapist. Why? Because looming on the horizon is the terrible triumvirate of middle school, puberty, and high school. And because if you wait until there’s a problem, you might not be able to get your kid to talk to you (or anyone else) about it.”
