    Defending Young Minds from Online Predators with Kristen A Jenson

    Do you worry about how to protect your kids from online dangers, from predators to porn? As Post-Traumatic Parents, we are especially aware of how dangerous the world can be! In this episode, Kristen A Jenson, from Defend Young Minds, helps us explore how to protect our kids in the digital world. We talk about her books, like Good Pictures, Bad Pictures, her journey towards being a kid safety crusader, and why digital safety is particularly important for those of us who have been traumatized.

    Trigger warning – for those Post-Traumatic Parents who have experienced boundary-crossing touch or physical abuse – this episode will explore those topics. Make sure to take some self-care precautions before listening. As Post-Traumatic Parents, we sometimes feel safer when we don’t think about these dangers, but that’s replacing the illusion of safety for actual safety. Instead, it’s better to educate ourselves and come up with a proactive plan to keep our kids safe. It can be done!

    Post Traumatic Parenting and Shame with Dr. Patti Ashley

    Post Traumatic Parenting and Shame with Dr. Patti Ashley

    Is shame the hardest part of Post-Traumatic Parenting? Shame and trauma go together, and shame and parenting do, too. Dr. Patti Ashley, author of Shame Informed Therapy, website https://pattiashley.com/ is the expert on this. We talked about how shame is a sense of not being enough, no matter how well we’re doing, and how trauma leads to shame. Most crucially, we talked about what to do about it. So many PTPs want to avoid shaming our own kids, but we don’t know exactly how. Dr. Ashley has some great ideas.

    Distraction and the Post-Traumatic Brain with Nir Eyal

    Distraction and the Post-Traumatic Brain with Nir Eyal

    Nir Eyal is the bestselling author of Indistractable. Distraction is familiar to us Post-Traumatic Survivors and Thrivers, right? It’s part of our recovery. As PTPs, we struggle with time management and distraction.  Reading Indistractable changed my life – and my conversation with Nir – even more so! His insights on attention and the post-traumatic brain are fascinating. He makes a crucial distinction that will blow your mind. You will never think about attention the same way again after hearing this.
