Disney Movie Talking Sheets

 

With the kids home and some extra downtime as a family, it may be safe to assume that we all have had a little extra screen time lately 😉

Disney movies are some of our favorites here at Erin’s House, that’s why we thought it would be fun to share some suggestions on how to have open conversations about death and grief while watching some of your favorite Disney classics. We’ll highlight different movies and recommend some talking points to help engage healthy conversations between you and your child.
