I don't know if its because I'm on phone but can't find video / open video.
I am always looking for ways to learn how to tell children. As a grandma to 12 I wish they know and could understand why sometimes grandma is the way she is. They also have an Uncle with an MI that I think they should be able to understand a little and not , I don't know, be scared or look at him different. Know what I mean.
It would be nice if kids didn't have to know about mental illness, but the reality is it's part of their world. Education can save lives.
