Growing a loving relationship when your child has experienced relational trauma in the past takes patience, care and attention, doesn’t it? Persistent PACE-fulness is like the yeast in the dough of love – you knead it to help it rise!
Creating love is a dynamic process – there is a hopefulness isn’t there, to the idea that it can be remade constantly, growing & changing over time. Just as re-parenting is an active commitment to developing trust & creating safety & connection. It is said that when you help a child to heal from trauma, you are participating in a rebirth. This is loving actively; providing food for the soul.
