Trauma Informed Parenting For Parents
I love my parents.
And they had no clue about what it means to be “trauma informed”.
Without having an education on the insidious nature of trauma,
and the way the Nervous System responds to
- time outs
- the “Cry it out” method
- having your preferences, ideas, and reality invalidated
- verbal abuse, insults, and devaluation
parents are simply not given the tools to ensure their children are raised with a healthy sense of “Self”.
This type of adversity not only impacts a child’s physical and emotional well-being, but it’s been well-documented how Early Adversity children face,
sometimes even before they’re born — impacts a child’s health,
vitality, self-worth, and informs what that child thinks they deserve in life.
It’s time to break the cycle and tell the truth — not to blame parents,
but to INFORM of the IMPACT of raising children unconscious of
what a Nervous System requires for feeling safe and secure in this world.
When you think of any and everything that we suffer from in this world,
almost all of it has to do with unresolved attachment trauma from childhood,
that comes from parents who couldn’t have known better.
It’s time to learn how to break the cycle.
Parenting is NOT a role.
It’s a RELATIONSHIP.
There Is a way to reframe parenting so that we are learning how to
LEAD children with inspiration rather than Discipline.
(“Discipline” = root word “Disciple”)
When we get this right — we as parents can stop trying to “fix” our children’s behavior, and we can actually connect and lead them on the other side of
working on our OWN triggers and stories.
This gives us the best chance of deepening understanding,
strengthening our bond, and expanding the child’s sense of self.
We are either expanding or diminishing our children,
and which way it goes depends entirely on how much healing
we have done on OUR OWN attachment wounds.

and break the cycle of trauma in the family system
promulgated by parents who didn’t know any better,
