My 16-year-old daughter joins me on the podcast to share an incident we had with the Department of Homeland Security during our return from a mother-daughter trip to Mexico earlier this year. She tells the story from her perspective, including what she was feeling in her body and her thoughts on how I handled it as the adult/mom. We talk about trauma responses and what they feel like in her body and whether or not feeling her feelings has been helpful for my daughter. (Hint: she says she doesn't believe that "this stuff works", but what makes me super happy is that she actually has the language to even have the conversation.)
At first glance, this episode seems to not paint me or my work in a very positive light. But what I hope listeners will glean from this episode is that, as parents, our kids often think what we try to teach them is dumb or pointless, but the important thing is that we're planting seeds. Our kids have their own journeys, their own karma to work out, their own soul mission and contracts. There's no way they're going to leave home without trauma or nervous system dysregulation — even with a parent who is a trauma coach and nervous system educator! Still, my daughter has language, and that gives me hope.
