six weeks out
the boys don't mention their dad
they don't miss him
which strikes me as clinically significant.
I am worried about them
and their trauma
what they saw
what they went through
their lives are changed, too
their sense of routine, security- shattered
We worked to establish a new routine right away
made them a bedroom
enrolled them in school
attended church regularly
anything we can do to reconstruct some sense of normalcy
as quickly as possible
But why don't they talk?
I am in new parenting territory
how to help them navigate this?
I lean heavily on my clinical training
and psyche research
and try to pull them through this.
