I am told on a regular basis that doing the work of healing is simple but not easy. I was blessed to have a stable home life as a child. It was my saving grace. For many people who have endure childhood trauma home life was not something to look forward to. In fact U.S. ChildWelfare‘s 2010 report states that “parents acting alone or with another person, were responsible for 79.2 percent of child abuse or neglect fatalities”. Fatalities. That particular piece of information is not even talking about children who endure abuse. The unfortunate truth is that abuse goes on unreported and there is still a level denial ever present in society at large.*
What is the solution? Education. Awareness. Speaking out. Telling the secrets.
What is the answer? Making changes, breaking the cycle and sharing what we learn. Where there are children there are caretakers. This book is filled with information to stop repeating the dysfunction and give future generations a chance at happy home lives. I am not a parent yet but hope that I can continue on the new path that both my parents started by choosing to create change.
An ebook written by Karen W. Saakyitne, Ph.D. is now listed here.
