How were you shaped by your parents or caregivers? What affect do we have on our children? And how do we raise healthy, happy children when we ourselves feel ‘broken’?
Ameé Quiriconi, host of the podcast One Broken Mom, describes herself as a trauma-informed parent and a trauma-survivor. Her podcast explores topics such as childhood traumas & adversities, neuroscience and psychology as well as parenting, relationships, and self-improvement. Find out more about Ameé and her podcast here.
In this episode, we explore what it means to be ‘broken’, how seemingly small things in our childhoods can contribute towards our trauma (and we all have trauma in some form), how we can use our adverse experiences to our strength instead of letting them hold us back, and how we can still raise children even when we are still a healing ‘work in progress’. Join us for a frank discussion on what it means to be a parent who is still trying to deal with their own sh*t.
