How to Deal with Trauma as a Homeschool Parent

“Determine who you want to be instead of who you
have become in response to your early trauma. You are
not your trauma. You may have been living like you
are but the real inside you is not. Affirm your updated
guiding components or criteria for a healthier mindset
and establish your updated identity”

Norm’s Advice for How to Deal with our Trauma as Homeschool Parents

  • When you’re with your kids, be present with your kids fully for that moment.
  • When you’re not with your kids, be fully present there too.
  • Your kids don’t need you to make them the be the center of your attention.
  • Stay with your healthy highway when you see your child in the ditch.
  • Develop their trust without judgment: listen to them deeply.
  • People’s criteria for life determine what they expect to happen in life. And when something so extreme happens beyond what they expect to happen, the distance between what they expect to happen and what actually happens is the degree of their trauma.

Traumatic events happen when they are least expected. Trauma No More is your recovery guide to make the best of these bad situations. The fast-track or full-track options can expedite your emotional healing toward wholeness, whether you are recovering by yourself or with others. Do you want to recover from a trauma?
