Tell the Telephone
Encourage children to tell the telephone their needs and
wishes whenever they want to. Explain that it is important
for them to express their secret desires. Be sure to explain
that although their wishes and hopes are important to state,
expressing them will not change what has happened.
Explain to them that adults and children often feel better
after talking about their needs or worries.
