4. Pets as therapy
This may not be an easy solution but getting Kobi as a therapy dog for Henry was one of the best decisions we made. Kobi is a Jack Russell crossed with a Chihuahu and is the kindest little dog ever. Just looking at his face and stroking him has helped Henry calm down and when we were in isolation in hospital talking to Henry’s Dad and seeing Kobi on FaceTime.
We also got a fish tank as we enjoyed visiting the fish in hospital so much. I thought this could be a good home schooling project too but in the end the fish have definitely ended up being my therapy as I find them so relaxing to watch, I didn’t know I could love a tank full of fish so much!
