Siblings & Trauma by Force Four Coaching

Published May 21, 2015 by thefamilyof5

Parenting a traumatised child is incredibly hard. Parenting two or more is practically impossible – whether it’s only one of them who has significant trauma or if it’s all of them. It can result in issues that can be painful, exhausting and guilt-inducing, and decisions that are emotionally agonising.

This is a really great article. I found it to be very validating. Big girl is really struggling right now and meeting her extreme needs as well as the ever increasing needs of her sisters is hard, too hard. I feel like I’m failing. This article helped me today. I’m not alone. I’m not a failure. I’m doing the best I can. It’s not my fault.

  • I’m not there, but I’m pretty sure you’re succeeding. The girls have come a long ways. The hard part is that developing keeps bringing new challenges, so it’s not like you meet the needs and things start getting easier. You meet the needs, then there are new challenges and new needs to meet. The slope uphill keeps getting steeper. It’s not going to get easier until they’re about 25 (I think).
