Horrified at hearing your mom’s (or dad’s) voice coming out of your mouth?
Finding yourself getting frustrated with your kids and not understanding why your reaction seems to be over-the-top compared to their behavior?
Wonder how other parents seem to know what to do while you’re constantly floundering?
If you’re a parent who was abused as a child, these statements may describe you.
Parenting is tough under the best of circumstances. But when the modeling you received was dysfunctional, you’re behind before you begin. When you were abused physically, sexually, emotionally, or spiritually, you’re handicapped in ways you try hard not to think about. You find yourself just surviving, and letting go of all those grand dreams you used to have of doing a much better job with your kids than your parents did with you.
There is HOPE!
In A Bigger Bandaid: HOPE for parents abused as children, I address what its like to be a parent who was abused as a child, the reasons why abuse in all its forms is passed down from generation to generation, and how you can break that cycle starting now.
This book is drawn from my 25 years of personal recovery, and 20+ years of working with wounded women and men who had been abused as children and wanted desperately to create a better life for their children.
In these pages you will discover:
- How your wounded heart can find healing.
- What you can do right now to begin breaking the cycle of abuse in your family.
- Specific steps you need to take in order to be the parent you choose to be, rather than copying or reacting against the parenting you received.
- How to reach out without becoming re-victimized.
- Steps from right here, to genuine joy.
So take a deep breath – your journey to freedom just began!
