When Angel learned how to take his pulse in gym class, he never imagined the effect that his newfound knowledge would have on his Uncle Luis... or the conversations that it would start.
As parents, we need to have the tools that help us deal with difficult topics and explain them in a way that children can understand without causing fear or anxiety.
Using expert language from Psychotherapist Kenny Tello, who worked directly with children affected by Pulse and featuring illustrations by over 20 passionate artists, My Tio’s Pulse explains what happened at the Pulse Nightclub on June 12, 2016, in a clear and simple way that will give children the tools to talk about difficult topics and empower them to feel safe.
Working together to help our children build a better world through love and unity.
