On October 29, 2010, our counselor Nikki gave the kids an assignment. They were asked to draw something they thought was “bad.” Liam drew a detailed court scene.
At another counselor appointment on December 3, 2010, he was asked what his biggest fear was. He answered “divorce.” He was 8-years-old.
We had never discussed court or divorce in our home.

1 thought on “Liam’s Biggest Fear”
Your story sparked a question for me (also an alienated mom) about a fear project my daughter did in fifth grade, 2016. Some of the fears were what you would expect from a ten year old child, but one of them was, “Losing the people I love.” I think I need to reflect on this…maybe I will blog about it. Thank you for sharing.
