Trauma behaviors can be confusing, sometimes scary, and definitely exhausting at times.
If you’re wondering where, specifically, to shift your parenting in order to move forward in the healing journey, this recorded conversation [runtime approx 45 minutes] can help.
In it, you’ll hear several pillars from the Mad to Glad Blueprint that you can use to smooth out intense emotions and reactions including:
- “Fire in the brain” and how you may accidentally be perpetuating it,
- The popular “Red Light Parenting” technique so kids learn listening is REQUIRED -- not optional -- and,
- A soothing strategy you can employ when your child melts down in public
Bridget, a solo mother of three children (two of which live with trauma symptoms), said this about incorporating the pillars in her parenting approach:
Through different therapies I had been taught different parenting strategies but due to the constant explosive and impulsive behavior from my oldest child it was really difficult to implement these parenting strategies on a consistent basis. Working 1:1 with a Mad to Glad Certified Parent Coach helped me see her in a way no one had described her before and helped me to understand that her behaviors were not completely her choices. Instead, they were the way her brain was wired and there is a way to change that. The tools I have gained in this program have helped me feel confident. Now I feel involved and present with my kids as well as involved and present in my own life’s journey.
