Bugsy Batty, The Coronavirus – A simple story to help children understand

I wrote a story to help adults explore the current pandemic with their young children. It includes helpful guidance to help those conversations flow a little easier.

It is illustrated by a lovely friend of mine, Debbie Joy Brookes, who worked remotely and at speed to get this out there. We hope you find it helpful at a time when there’s a lot of worry in the air yet at a time when we need to help children process this so that their own trauma is mitigated as much as possible

Please share widely so that all adults needing to support young children have access to this, resource at this time.

Thank you

Perception

Delusion

Locked away in a delusion
In a world that only she
Perceives to be her normal
Yet is not reality

Held hostage by her mind
Constrained by what she feels
Convinced by her conviction
Her beliefs are very real

Suspicious of all others
Fearing what they might do
Concerned by what they’re thinking
Certain for sure, they’re true

A hell bound persecution
With no reprieve; a downward slide
Day in day out a prisoner to
Her thoughts; no place to hide.

Yet have a little sympathy
Step out of judgements way
For she deserves your love and help
To bring in gracious rays

Rays of deep understanding
Compassion and a heart
To see; to help; to be a friend
Will you now do your part?

What is Compassion?

The hand of comfort touching hearts
With concern and care
On the wing of understanding
Rejecting judgement and despair
Without assumption or bias
Universal altruism pure
Embracing selflessness in union
With love and mercy whole, secure
Innate within the senses
Giving succour and sympathy
Nurturing connections
Surpassing empathy
Paving life paths of fulfilment
Of health and kindness warm
Compassion is happiness
In its highest form.
