|We are a script of our past, often times from our parents, relatives, teachers, friends, or of a traumatic experience or situation. This may not always be good, especially when one’s past consist of trauma. Our lives can be in constant stress, fear, and worry. The subconscious mind is like a computer, except it is more powerful and everything is auto saved. Even when we prefer it not to be saved. The more traumatic- the stronger emotional connection to it.Now as a parent or professional of children, this may be effecting your overall parenting or professional potential.Whether you are a parent – adoptive, foster, relative or non-relative caregiver, and/or biological, or a professional of a child with a traumatic history. This trauma could be neglect, abandonment, abuse (physical, mental, and/or sexual), loss of a parent, domestic violence, a horrific accident, bitter divorce, or maybe consist of multiply traumatic experiences.
When trauma is involved they may exhibit behaviors: • aggression • defiance • lying • stealing
When our beliefs on how we should raise children does not work, we may feel helpless and hopeless. I understand, because I was one of those parents. Which has driven me to my passion of educating and supporting parents and professionals.
