Xenia Schembri co-founded At The Ark Inc., a charity which supports the families of abused children, with her husband, Simon. She is a qualified counsellor and a mum of four adult children. One of her many passions is to equip children with self-protective behaviours and to instill in children that it is so brave to share one¿s heart, emotions and pain with a trusted adult. From the Author:As a parent, I have had times where I was so confused with my child¿s behaviours. Wouldn¿t it be great if they could just talk to us and explain what they are feeling and howwe can help¿especially when our children have been through trauma of some kind? Teaching children self-protective behaviours does not scare or scar them, but instead it empowers kids and helps build up their self-esteem.
