Over 60% of Americans have experienced at least one Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE). More than 1 in 6 of us have 4 or more ACE. The trauma that we experience may be a challenge that we are able to move through or it may have debilitating consequences. Either way, our “body keeps score.” It can be helpful to develop practical skills that will help us intentionally respond to life stresses rather than simply react, perhaps unhelpfully repeating what was ingrained in our body. This webinar provides simple, practical ways to honor what is and has happened while not repeating behaviors that create barriers to the future we want. Click here to view the webinar.
Though “electronic babysitters” like our phones, tablets, TV and the computer may be an easy way to keep our children distracted so that we can get our work done, reliance on screens to occupy our children can have a long term consequence on their development. Moreover, when we as parents and caregivers spend too much time on our screens, that can also harm our childrens’ development. It is not just the negative content that children are exposed to, it is the social and emotional learning that they are missing by not interacting with you and others face-to-face. This webinar gives practical tips on how to reduce screen time and create the family connected family you envision.
