Parenting trauma kids is no joke. It is the hardest and most rewarding job you'll ever do.
Understanding how kids who have lived trauma live, think and function is necessary to remain sane as a parent. Having the understanding and the right tools to parent these amazing survivors is key to a peaceful home life.
With the Wounded Not Broken Kids Curriculum we offer educations for parents on many different topics.

Following she worked with special needs in schools and homes. Additionally she trained in counselling, leadership, sign language and business.
In spite of all her work, it wasn’t until much later that it became personal, and she worked through the abuse from her upbringing and marriage.
“All I knew was how to survive, I was good at that. When I finally found the courage to work through my past, I felt the transition to becoming a survivor. I made it! I recognized my own strength and resilience. Still there was an inkling that there was more. What if there was more to life than being a survivor? What if I could be a “livor”? what if I could have Joy? Dreams? more?”
