Devastating Headlines and Single Fatherhood for 10/14/2017
Dear Family Coach
Dear Family Coach: Lately, all of the news is having a disastrous effect on me. Every day, I become more and more depressed about world events, tragic shootings, police brutality and natural disasters. There is suffering all around, and I’m feeling hopeless. At the same time, I’m trying to protect my kids and put on a happy face. I worry I’m failing. Please help me. — Losing It
Dear Losing It: I commend you for not wanting to unleash your worries on your kids. But you are allowed to be human and be affected by the world. If they see something is bothering you, then feel free to share it with them in an age-appropriate way.
