Educating Others About Trauma Isn’t Easy!
One of the most frustrating parts about parenting a child with invisible needs can be educating others (especially schools) about the complexities and seriousness of early childhood trauma exposure. Early trauma exposure changes the structure of the brain and how a child thinks, feels, speaks, behaves, and processes information. It also affects every social interaction, relationship and how or if a child learns anything at school.
Issues related to developmental trauma are real and can affect every aspect of a child’s life FOR LIFE! They aren’t just an “at home problem.” They aren’t a choice. They aren’t something kids will simply “outgrow” or “get over”. Most importantly, they’re not “normal kid stuff” and the behaviors these children exhibit aren’t things that all kids do.
This full-page, high-resolution chart is an invaluable tool for educating others! See “At-a-Glance” just how complex, far-reaching, and long-lasting the effects of early childhood trauma really are.
Hi! I’m Diana. I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (and challenging) kids, and I’m a certified parent and family coach. Two of my children came to me through adoption and struggle with all sorts of issues including FASD. RAD, ADHD, mood disorder, learning disabilities, and more. Sometimes they’re my greatest challenge and always my greatest gifts. Though we’re far from perfect and we still have our less than stellar days, we are healing and we are happy. Our family is living proof that it can and does happen!
I’d love to help you find your way out, too! I have a passion for helping hurting families (especially mothers of tough kids) find their way out of darkness and chaos and enjoy a greater sense of connection, peace, and harmony in their lives and in their homes.
