Raising Competent Children:
With Grief and Trauma in Mind

Parenting your grandchildren can take loads of patience and proven way to communicate, discuss and handle some of the tougher spots. This is particularly true in light or trauma and grief issues that often come when parenting grandchildren or being a kin provider/parent.  BLOOM can be a great support to you, by helping you understand the developmental and neurobiological underpinnings that lie beneath some behaviors and then showing you the best way to respond to and support children.

As always, from Kidlutions, we wish you happy {grand}parenting and teaching,
