Many of our kids have experienced years and years of trauma, so our first job is to get them back to a place of regulation.
Parenting is not for the faint of heart. Understanding how to best love, teach, and correct our children is something we are continually learning. Add to that, learning to parent kids who have experienced trauma, and things that may have worked for our biological children now seem to have the opposite effect on our kids. In today’s episode, Kristin Berry brings us practical insight and encouragement to help us parent our kids in a way that keep us connected.
1. First, Help Your Child Regulate His Emotions
2. Take Away the Power of Negative Behaviors
3. Pursue Connection with Your Child
