Significant changes to a family, such as divorce or the addition of a step-parent, can have a major impact on the emotional health of children. It can be difficult for a child to understand why such changes are happening, and even more difficult to express their feelings about the matter. As a result, children often express their frustration and anxiety by acting out behaviorally.
The My Changing Family worksheet is a sentence-completion activity designed to help children verbalize their thoughts and feelings about family changes, such as separation or divorce. This worksheet creates a safe starting point for children who have difficulty discussing their thoughts and feelings, while providing opportunities to segue into important other conversations like "why" and "what next?".
