Reply to "Children and Toxic Stress: The Discussion Continues"

Katherine thank you!  I appreciate that you have reminded all of us that as we think about large macro systemic solutions we must also keep in mind these day to day interactions with children, adults, and families who have experienced trauma and how they can contribute to retraumatization.  I completely agree with you that often children who have experience trauma are labeled and marginalized because of their behaviors, which as you point out, are legitimate and normal reactions to trauma.  Personally, I have really used the key question "What has happened to you" as a mantra when I find my self reacting or judging someone else's behavior negatively.
