Default police, littles and apprehension

yesterday we had some police come to our area where we live and take someone away in the back of their car.

the littles in our system are confused, and don't fully understand what they saw (and feel very shaken), and us grownups feel that we might have to talk to the police and give them statements, after all, we saw everything and how it all unfolded

Possible trigger:


now the girl is shaken and says she doesn't want to talk to the police in fear that she'll get in to trouble

which means they might come back in search of witnesses (including ourselves) to ask what actually happened.

how can we describe to the littles what's going on so they can understand without hurting them, and if they ask us to say anything do we have a right to refuse?

it would feel wrong, because we saw it all, but we're shaken by it too

we're not even sure if they are going to come back

Unhappy Re: police, littles and apprehension

I’m sorry I don’t have advice.. I’m feeling like crap and very triggered.

My “littles” are scared and freaking out

I haven’t had dealings with the police ever

I don’t “cope well” with life
