All foster children have experienced some level of trauma.
As a result, they often face:
As a caregiver, you have tried everything you know to parent through these challenges.
- Traditional parenting techniques come up short.
- Foster care pre-training isn’t enough or may be forgotten.
- Friends and family provide well-meaning advice that doesn’t work.
You feel confused and overwhelmed by what your children need in the midst of everyday struggles. You may even feel like giving up.
Trauma shows up in kids as challenging or bad behaviors. Even babies in the womb or infants experience trauma. Though they may not “remember,” science shows us that their bodies store the trauma and do in fact, remember.
After living in a stressful environment, experiencing abuse or neglect, their bodies are chemically conditioned to dramatic reactions to stress or anxiety. They often respond to daily challenges with reactions of fight, flight or freeze. It may also surface as the inability to control their emotions or cope with problems or consistent behaviors or raging, lying or manipulating. Children of any age have triggers that stem from that trauma and “trip” their bodies into behavioral patterns that seem difficult to interrupt, stop or avoid.
The impact of these behaviors on foster families can be difficult, discouraging and damaging. Families need an advocate who understands trauma and understand how to help children and families heal. Chosen is a team of seasoned professionals who are passionate about helping caregivers grow, children heal and families flourish.
