Tried nagging, shouting, taking away screen time, but with no success? Dr Amber Elliott explains why children who have experienced early trauma need something different – therapeutic parenting – a kind of everyday ‘superparenting’ which champions empathy over punishment.
Trying to parent children who have trauma-triggered behaviours is tough, and none of us are perfect. Taking this as a starting point, Dr Elliott provides you with a ten-step process to transform your parenting. From developing self-acceptance and ideas for building motivation through to creative ways to think about structure and routine, the book combines principles with practical advice and exercises you can try out at home.
Working together, you and your child can discover the secrets of superparenting and overcome trauma-triggered behaviours!
