I am trying to be a “trauma-mama” and use new trauma-informed parenting skills. What I am struggling with is this: My kids don’t respond to me speaking nicely and asking them if they will please go do such and such. I find myself getting exasperated and ending up yelling (and feeling awful about it) but it simply does not work with my kids. I’m willing to try something new, but apparently my kids don’t respond to trauma-informed parenting techniques.
Am I Alone??
