FEEDBACK FOR THIS UNIT: (thank you to everyone for letting us know your thoughts)

Begun to look at and question my current strategies for parenting my children and to examine more thoroughly why they won’t work with my son and aren’t good for my daughter either.  I have learnt some new terminology to help me understand trauma and the way it impacts upon my son’s life…I have learnt that therapeutic parenting is hard and I will have to persist at this for a long time before it becomes anything like second nature. I’m only just beginning this particular journey…(Parent)
