Help Them Grow
Family breakdown impacts children in surprising ways. But, if you take action, the effects of trauma can be reduced and/or repaired. Children are involved in roughly 47% divorces in Australia. One in three women experience violence in their life. Of all women who have experienced domestic violence, 47% of them report that children have been witness to it.
My children were exposed to domestic violence. The impact of trauma on children is often profound and unexpected. However, that time in our lives lies at the heart of Rose + Tye and we have turned it into our greatest strength.
Like many children who have experienced trauma, my children had to learn how to feel safe, manage their emotions and confusion, and become resilient. However, my children have been supported in this process with the help of some very wonderful people (aka “my team”).
So, I developed this very special collection of educational aids to share what I have learnt and how I have supported my children’s recovery. I have developed all these pieces through experiences with psychologists, social workers and liaison staff. They are designed to help create safe spaces for learning, creativity and play. And also stimulate resilience, emotional literacy as well as managing anxiety and tension.
