Project Description

Therapeutic stories are stories that are designed to address a fear your child might be experiencing that could be causing problems, even if they are minor ones.  The story needs to be sufficiently distant in its content to not look like a persuasion tactic.  Try writing one!  You might enjoy it and it might help your child.  If you produce something you like and want to share on the hub, send it to me at:  natalie@lifestoryhub.com
