Trauma-Informed Parenting 101
Parenting Kids With Trauma Histories/Capital Letter Syndromes
Let's face it- there is nothing more frustrating than trying your best at parenting, only to feel as if you have lost your parenting mojo and never actually have peace in your home.
There's nothing more disheartening than finally getting the Capital Letter Syndrome Diagnosis for your kiddos (GAD,ADHD, ASD, FASD, SPD, etc...) and/or beginning your foster/adoption journey only to have no idea how to parent anymore (that was me).
You know you should be learning more about WHY your child is struggling to behave (regulate) but you're so overwhelmed, isolated, and alone, you don't know where to start.
So you don't. You live the same day on repeat, wishing things would change.
Other parents make it look easy. They parade around in their Pinterest-worthy outfits, sipping Starbucks at Target. Their kids seem to behave perfectly.
You thought the hard part would be fitting the foster training in, adopting the kids, or getting a diagnosis for your child (or all three), but it turns out, that was only the beginning. And now you feel as if you are missing something. Did everyone else get a new parenting manual and yours is lost in the mail?
You're not alone. Most parents of kiddos with trauma histories and Capital Letter Syndromes are in the same boat. You don't see them because they're isolated just like you. I was. Or they are too busy riding out the latest meltdown to go to Target. Or grab a coffee.
The truth is getting some trauma-informed training (like this mini-course) is a game-changer that will help you get your proactive parenting mojo back.
The problem? There's just so much information out there, you don't know where to turn. Reading a few quotes on Instagram or watching Tik Tok isn't cutting it. You need answers and an organized approach that works for you!

“Kathleen’s insight — both from her firsthand experience as an adoptive mother and from her education— is something I wish I’d had when we began our own journey as foster parents.- Kristin Peters, Adoptive/Foster Parent
"Kathleen is an endless source of information when it comes to foster/adoption situations, triumphs, and struggles. Her genuine, heart-felt desire for this purpose is something I admire. Trauma, which is prominent in this field, is not an easy thing to talk about but Kathleen is inviting, nurturing, and attentive to those she’s trying to help. She is the first person I go to when having any questions on how to approach certain situations that a child from a hard place in my life may be going through. Thankful God has placed such a knowledgeable, driven mentor like her in my life." -Jessica McHugh, KInship Foster Parent
