MORE THAN A BEAR

Our work with Child Life

Cuddles with Kindness is proud of its effort to aid Child Life Specialists in providing the support they need. The Association of Child Life Professionals states, "Children today confront a wide variety of stressful and potentially traumatic events that may overwhelm their natural ability to cope and heal. Difficult or unexpected experiences, such as chronic illness, hospitalization, the death of a loved one, or the aftermath of violent acts or natural disasters are upsetting for everyone involved. Children are particularly vulnerable, and parents or other responsible adults may feel unsure of their ability to help children to successfully understand and manage these experiences."

 

With our efforts, child life specialists can utilize stuffed

animals in therapeutic ways to help children cope

with events in their lives.
