Are you struggling to understand your child’s needs? Do you find yourself without any ideas as to how to reach your frustrated child? Do you engage in constant power struggles only to feel guilty that you got roped into an argument where no one wins? Are you emotionally derailed by changes in plans because the thought of telling your child raises your anxiety exponentially? What if there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with you or your child? What if he/she is wired this way on purpose and you are frustrating those purposes? What if instead of trying to change your child, you need to change? Ouch.
The proliferation of disorders is symptomatic of inordinate stress faced by our children. Fortunately, through this training parents can create the consistency and security children crave by parenting with integrity. By modeling self-control and learning practical calming tools, parents will foster greater responsibility in their children. By educating yourself on the topic of Trauma and how it shapes your child’s actions, reactions, and inactions, you can gain a better understanding of their inner workings. You can parent from an understanding lens and react appropriately in a loving but structured environment where you are in the drivers seat!
