<p>Does anyone have any advice to how to tell a 7 year old "explosive child" that she is going to be starting some play-therapy? I'm not sure how well this is going to go over.</p>

<p>I might try an approach like, "You know how sometimes it's hard for you when (insert example here)? Well, I found someone who's going to help you learn some tools so you don't have to feel that way all the time."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No idea if that will resonate. Hope it goes well.</p>

<p>That's good. I also want to stress that DH and I will be going also, but not at the same time. I feel like it's our whole family dynamic. I wasn't stressing about it and then DH was all like- you tell her. And then I described my approach and he was like- basically you're going to trick her? No, I'm going to tell the school she has a doctors appointment and let her know we're going to see a lady who will help us all get along better and stop yelling so much.</p>
