Ya know when a person says “I don’t know” to almost every question? Typically, the office rule is that “I don’t know” is not allowed in therapy so clients have the opportunity to share their feelings and do “the work”. But what are they supposed to say instead? Sometimes people, especially kids, are afraid to talk about things or they want to talk about it later, but they don’t know how to express that. Some kids are trained to always give an answer, even if it’s not true, and sometimes, they really have no idea what to say. These cards are meant to help kids understand the choices they have when talking about difficult subjects.
So Print these cards to help people know they have a choice in what they do or do not say…… and sometimes, “I can’t remember” is the correct answer!
