Iceberg Parenting: An Introduction to Parenting Trauma Kids

Many parents find that traditional parenting methods like consequences and punishment just don’t work for improving behavior in children that have been exposed to trauma.The more parents chip away at unwanted behavior, the more bad behavior seems to surface. A more effective behavior is to look beneath the surface for the things that are causing the unwanted behaviors like unmet needs, emotions that children do not understand how to regulate, or a trigger that sets off a memory or flashback to a traumatic event. Learn how to look deeper through bottom-up parenting to see what really drives bad behavior to help your child eliminate the underlying cause of bad behavior.
