Hello Mrs. Boss, I know it's impossible to solve , but I need to know how to get a young girl to speak that has been traumatized by her past. Her name is Grace and she is 6yrs old. I'm afraid that she will never learn anything about the dangers in the world. Her dad was accused of being a sympathizer and her mom died a few days after his trial date. I constantly tell her that other people would be nicer if she would just talk. I can sympathize with her being that I've faced the unwelcome looks, but I guess it's not as easy for her as it was for me. Please help me save her from this dangerous path so her fait is not like her parents.

Nothing is impossible to solve, the solution to your problem is time. Grace is young and is conveying a small sign of PTSD ( Post traumatic stress disorder). Getting her to talk might not be the best way to help her anyway. She needs to know that your not like her parents, and that she can trust you, but it is your job to build that trust

Building Trust :

- take her to the park

- let her hold your most valuable possessions

- keep all her secrets

- help her out of trouble

All these statements are ways you guys will be able to bond silently, then eventually she will come around.
