Home Alone: Lessons Learned From Courageous Abandoned Children

Home Alone:
Lessons Learned From Courageous Abandoned Children

Show Notes

Imagine waking up one morning to discover you are entirely alone. Everyone else in your home has disappeared. You look out the window and the streets are empty. No cars on the road, no planes overhead.  Shops are abandoned. Schools are deserted. Buildings completely vacant.No phone reception. No internet connection. No electricity. No television or radio. It is silent and eerie. Lonely. 

You are alone on an island with no one else and there’s no way out. 
Now imagine if all this was happening and you are a child. Book and movies about children abandoned and left on their own are popular in fiction. But they also happen in real life. The most powerless and the most vulnerable have at times in history figured out how to survive on their own and they have lessons to teach the rest of us.
