The volunteers in this program visit hospitals, nursing homes, etc. She taught our volunteers ballooning, face painting, make-up and costuming, etc. But most important, she taught them how to conduct themselves with respect and compassion toward their audiences. RoByn is a wonderful clown. She is a marvelous teacher and a thoughtful, compassionate person." -Brenda Westheim, Project Coordinator, RSVP of Bergen County

Suggestions for parents Put yourself in your child's place. To you, A clown is an old friend. To a young child, a clown is someone who looks, dresses and acts differently than the people they are used to. They do not have your frame of reference and a clown is a stranger. Take some time to prepare them for the experience. Find a picture book or video about clowns. Describe what Clowns look like and how they may dress and act differently than what your child is used to. Don't make the suggestion that, "You might be scared" because your child might think you're suggesting that clowns are something to be feared. The more prepared and positive your child feels, the more likely a positive outcome. Be accessible to your child, it is a new experience, stay within view, preferably within reach if your little one is unsure. Take your time and don't rush her into the experience. Little children might be fascinated by a clown from a distance but face to face may be an entirely different matter. Move in slowly and if your child seems tentative, let him sit back and watch while other children interact with the clown. Parents might also want to shake hands with the clown and chat for a few minutes to show that this strange person is fun, not frightening. A parent should keep an eye out for "hyper" entertainers -- the ones who talk too loud and move too fast. Head them off when necessary. Fear of costumed characters is normal. You needn't be embarrassed by it and don't compare your child to other children who are enjoying the experience it's o.k. if your child doesn't like clowns -- life will go on and the child who reacts with dismay this year may be the very one who want to run off to join the circus next year.
