I Am Not Afraid
Living in an abusive home is a terrifying experience. Leaving that home can be a time of confusion and unanswered questions for children. This title was created to help parents and children begin a discussion of the feelings that are present when going through the upheaval of escaping a domestic abuse situation. Ms. Bronkar draws on personal experience to relate the defenses children can build to hide the fear they have of living in an abusive home. Children often feel they have no control and fear for their future. “I Am not Afraid” follows a child’s defense mechanism of pretending they are not afraid as they prepare to and ultimately leave an abusive home. Going to a safe house is the first step in ensuring safety. A child in this situation is left with many unanswered questions. Reading “I Am not Afraid” together can help begin conversations that relay some of those feelings and provide a mechanism for children to express their concerns.
