I cannot say enough about this article written by a dear friend and colleague, Dr. Rebecca Schrag Hershberg of Little House Calls Psychological Services. Last week’s Senate confirmation hearings were at best horrifying and at worst re-traumatizing. When we moms are exposed to news like this, especially if it triggers our own personal memories of abuse, it can be very, very tough to parent effectively. Dr. Hershberg provides some effective, common sense strategies for managing yourself and your kids during these troubling times. A must-read for all parents.
