It’s not your fault and it’s not your responsibility either.
Follow these eight elements of a comprehensive healing plan when trauma memories seems too challenging.
As parents, we want to make sure your children never experience any distress. But we’ve got to raise humans that have some tolerance for discomfort and distress. We can’t rescue them from that. We’ve got to teach them how to handle it and deal with it.
Respond to your children with love in their worst moments, their broken moments, their selfish moments, their lonely moments, their frustrating moments, their inconvenient moments, because it is in their most unlovable human moments that they most need to feel loved.
Learn to communicate with your child and let them know that they’re not alone. Here are five things to talk with your kids about bullying.
“Bullies are cruel and possibly irretrievable, but their anger and bullying behavior is often a displacement of their own lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. Mostly they are lost souls who do not know how to feel comfortable in the world. Their experience has been of failure, rejection, and lack of ability to function well.” – Cleary& Sullivan, 2004.
Just as adult survivors may suffer from stress and trauma, children also have unique ways of coping. Social aggression might not seem like a very big deal on the surface, but if not tackled properly, it can have far-reaching consequences.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one definition of your life, Define yourself.
In the heat of the moment, try these simple phrases to help your children identify, accept, and work through their anxious moments.
