So I went to see The Lego movie with the 5 year-old mentee, his foster mom and the social worker. I didn’t want to come on too strong with the little guy, but I wanted him to know that I was there. I was pretty low-key so he could get used to me at his pace.
At one point he was unhappy about something and I took the opportunity to attempt to reason with him and help him through it. It worked!
