How do you talk to your kids about what’s happening in Ukraine? Have you broached the subject yet? Dr. Aliza Pressman says it is time to have that discussion.
Pressman is a developmental psychologist, an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital, and the host of the Raising Good Humans Podcast.
She tells us that children know when something's wrong and nobody's talking about it. Pressman says tackling difficult issues, in a developmentally appropriate way, is crucial to raising kids with empathy.
