Teina is feeling sad. He can’t stay over with his nanny and eat popcorn and watch TV like he used to. He can’t even give her a hug! For many children and their whānau, the social distancing and isolation of the last few years has been a real struggle. When you can’t awhi, or hug and care, for someone, it’s really hard.

The Awhi Warrior helps families talk with their tamariki about the difficult emotions that arise when we are separated from the ones we love. In this beautiful story, Nanny Mihi helps her moko Teina discover the power of the atua of te ao Māori to nurture and help him care for himself and others through tough times.
