How to empower our children in times of crisis
Leonhard Thun-Hohenstein illustrates the various crises our children can suffer. Above all, he provides guidance on how parents can stay confident in difficult times and take courage to actively manage a crisis.
Our children are increasingly exposed to crises, not only due to current events such as the COVID19 pandemic or the war in Ukraine, but in everyday life too—sometimes with devastating consequences. Leonhard Thun-Hohenstein, long-time director of a psychiatric clinic for children and adolescents, vividly describes children’s worries using case histories and personal experience. Most notably, however, he shows how we can protect our children and make them resilient, and why our society must finally pay more attention to their concerns.
