After Court

  • Be proud of your child, no matter what the outcome is. Testifying is difficult and your child needs to be reassured that he/she did his/her best.
  • It can be empowering for your child to have had his/her “say” in court.
  • Any disappointment that you have about the outcome should be discussed privately with other adults or professionals.
  • Be optimistic about the future for your child. With parental support, children can be very resilient.
