There are so many incredible resources available when it comes to parenting kids who have experienced complex trauma. These are just a few of my personal favorites. I first and foremost practice TBRI parenting (Trust Based Relational Intervention) because I’ve found time and time again that it’s necessary to, “Connect before Correct,” with kids in care. Punitive methods don’t work with kids who have experienced trauma. Thanks to these resources, and our TBRI parenting coach, we have formed an incredibly strong attachment to our adopted sons, and have also had tremendous success in attaching and connecting with our foster children. If you’re considering fostering/adoption, I would definitely take a moment to check some of these out!
