A lot of people are experiencing an incredibly troubling time now in Victoria – more than ever before in their lives. Clearly life has changed, sadness and distress are now major emotions being experienced by families and children. It’s not just that people’s livelihoods are being affected but also their dreams are under threat. It is important to remember that kids rely on us to keep things calm and to keep things in perspective.
