Good at School/Bad at Home? Bad at Home/Good at School?

Behavior Chameleons

Q.

My 16 year old adopted a daughter has been diagnosed with Attachment Disorder while incarcerated in a juvenile jail. This led me to read two of your books which I found very helpful and insightful. My wife does not believe she has such an disorder because she behaved very well during incarceration. She believes the bad behaviors we experience are choices. Can a child with such disorders behave while incarcerated and exhibit behaviors associated with such a disorder as soon as she returned home? God bless you & yours.

A.

This is similar to children who behave wonderfully at home or school, and do the opposite in the other. The issue is, where does a child/person/adult feel most threatened or stressed.  I have an adopted son who is now in jail and he is very comfortable there because he doesn't have to do anything other than what he is told.  It is a "safe" place for him where the world at large is not "safe".  Identifying the threat though is not always obvious. For example, the home may be thought to be a "safe" place but if the relationships/attachment could be threatened due to behaviors, then the home may be perceived as 'not safe' for the child and be a trigger for behaviors. Start with, if the behaviors are negative, there is stress/threat. Then, figure it out from there to reduce the threat or stress. One can view behaviors as 'choices' but not really at a 'conscious' level. The choices, if there are such, are based on 'what can I do to survive?'. These however are reactions rather than responses and, as such are not really choices.

Baby, You Are a Parenting Superstar (Pt. 2)

(...click here if you missed Part 1)
How many life lessons must you learn? When will this school of life hold a graduation ceremony? When will you be able to sleep a full night, stress and worry free? When will you go through a day with ease and grace, loved completely by your family with no tears, no anger, no fear? The answers to these questions you may never know but each moment, each hour, each day, you continue, and still find time for a laugh, for a breath, for a moment to be gracious. Baby, you are a Parenting Super Star!

Love becomes fear. Hope becomes despair. Joy becomes sadness. You cry. You stress. You worry. You toss and you turn. The school calls again. Another curse word, another broken possession, another disrupted family dinner. You wail inside and sometimes openly, "Oh Lord why has thou forsaken me to the desert barren of hope and peace? What have I done to be stricken by the one thousand locusts all wrapped into one ungrateful, defiant child? Where is my blessing?" And with each rising sun you get up and do it again. Baby, you are a Parenting Super Star!

For you see, fear is the common way. It is, in fact, the broad and wide. Many will travel this path. Love is the straight and narrow. There are few that will follow this path. Even fewer will lead their families down it. And there are many more that will judge you for traveling it. It is also a fact that this judgment will make your task even more difficult and this is as it shall be. Without the pressure, without the conflict, without the heat of the fire, the diamond could not emerge from the coal. Fear not your journey, your path, or for that of your child. Walk the path of love, the straight and narrow, and continue to get up after you have stumbled, as you surely will. You will see. You will see. Baby, you are a Parenting Super Star!

Choose Love,
B

Abandoned, Rejected or Adopted…what do you call it?

Day 1 - Abandoned, Rejected or Adopted…

I hope you’ve been well.

I’ve been going through a lot the past couple of years.

It’s been an emotional roller coaster.

I’d like to share a story with you.

Please don’t forward it…

Don’t facebook it…

Don’t tweet it…

It’s just for you and my other Post Institute Members.

Here goes…

How many times have you wondered…

What is wrong with him?

Why won’t he just act right…

Show us love…

Let us love him back…

Go to sleep…

Stop lying…

Just comply…

Sit at the table and eat…

What are we doing wrong…

Surely it couldn’t be us…

Maybe it is…

No it’s gotta be him…

????????????????????????????????????

40 years I’ve been living with this affliction…

This pain…

Insecurity…

Uncertainty…

Fearful of not being good enough…

Terrified…

Acting out…

Withdrawing…

Not trusting that God loves me.

Over the next several days I’m gonna share my story with you.

If what you’ve been doing hasn’t been working

I’ve got a message you need to hear.

More coming.

Choose Love,

B.

Day 2 - I was born fearful and alone

Conceived in a womb that could only carry me to term

Wilma knew she had to give me up.

It was a painful and traumatic decision

One I’ve lived with for forty years

She recounted the story and I cried

Thirty seven years I’d lived in the dark

not knowing, ashamed, fearful…

sensitive…how else could I feel?

Perhaps grateful?

Grateful for feeling not good enough every day?

Grateful for feeling overwhelmed and ashamed?

Grateful for constantly fearing rejection…

like an invisible monster waiting for me…

lurking…

sharp teeth…

threatening…always…always right there.

How should I feel?

I learned to feel over time…

Lots of emotional processing…

Lots of crying and screaming…

But it wasn’t enough…

The monster only settled into the background…

Out of sight…never out of mind…

buried deep in the cells of my body.

Tomorrow I’ll share more.

Choose Love,

B.

 Day 3 - Hitting Rock Bottom

Adopted child grown up…

Savior of the world’s hurting children…

Light to their desperate parents…

And here I am divorced…AGAIN…

In capable of staying connected…

In capable of staying in relationship…

Always feeling better…

Safer…

Alone…

Never connected…

It’s not an attachment disorder…

It’s an attachment challenge.

I am constantly challenged to remain secure

in the presence of relationship…

To stand present…

To trust…

To feel…that I am okay…

that I am loved.

And that…

was the final breakthrough…

what I had been waiting for my entire life.

The moment…

that series of seconds…

when all of the pain and loneliness…

the shutdown…

the withdrawal…

the absence…

comes crashing into your soul like a spiritual tsunami…

from the depths of my being.

And like an infant child I lay…

in the middle of the dark room…

crying…weeping…racked with emotional pain.

And then I saw…

What I saw is what you need to know.

I’ll share it tomorrow.

Choose Love,

B.

Day 4 - Does your child feel this way?

Have you ever felt like your crying would not stop?

Would not cease?

Like it was pouring forth from you uncontrollably…

without any control…

feeling of safety…

security…

Just pouring forth?

That’s how I felt.

I was alone and I was mourning…

deeply…

I was grieving…

It was so unexpected.

My wife called and asked if she should come home.

I said no…I needed to feel this…

I needed to feel this pain…

deep within me…

And I did…I felt it and let go…

I washed deep into my memory base…

Down to the base of my brain-stem…

I was in the womb…

Safe…

Warm…

Okay.

And then…no more…I fought not wanting

to leave…

Knowing in my soul that I would never feel okay again…

Never feel safe…

Never feel loved…

And that was it…in that moment…

I realized…

For the first time in my life…

I realized…

That I never believed God loved me.

And that was the root of my mistrust…

If God couldn’t love me…

how could anyone else?

And I was washed away again with my grief.

What I felt…released…comprehended…

has transformed my life.

Tomorrow I’ll share what it means for you, your life

and your child.

Choose Love,

B.

Day 5 - Rejection is buried alive

Like an electric shock…

I knew I was free from a lifelong affliction.

I mourned a life ruled by fear and insecurity.

The hours, days, months, and years I had spent

craving to be okay…

Just wanting to be loved…

Safe…

Secure…

Connected…

Not alone…

But I had never been able to trust it…

I never could…

I never did…

I didn’t believe…

I didn’t feel…

I didn’t trust that God loved me.

And I realized that for the adopted child…

the pain is buried in the DNA.

They feel rejection…

Insecurity…

Threat of abandonment…

Fear…

down into the very marrow of their bones.

And that is me…

It still is…

But today I am better…

It has deepened my understanding of what adopted

children, foster children and those that try to love

them go through.

More specifically, adopted children and their parents.

I can speak to foster parents…

I can speak to biological parents…

I can speak to grandparents…

But it’s adoptive parents…

It’s their experience…

It’s the experience of their children…

that I truly understand.

And now I understand it even deeper.

I plan to share that understanding

In a special live webinar November 13th at 8pm EST, (This will be a long event - At least 2 hours, maybe even 3 hours long), If you want to truly know why you struggle to connect with your child…

Why you really struggle to have the loving relationship

that you desire…

Then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

And if you don't like it you don't have to pay anything. Attendance is limited. For details and to register... To Register for this Event Click Here

Understanding and Healing Trauma in the Adopted Child part 3 of 3

by Bryan Post

By focusing on just the cognitive and behavioral aspects of a child’s emotional well-being, traditional mental health has failed to fully acknowledge the impact of trauma on adopted children cognitively, emotionally, and physically. The following are some additional concrete steps that parents can take which may assist in helping adopted children who’ve experienced trauma begin to feel safer and more secure in their new family environments.

  1. Do not hit traumatized children. Doing so will only identify you as a threat. The biblical verse spare the rod, spoil the child speaks to the raising of sheep. A rod is used to guide the sheep and the staff to pull him back into line when he strays. Hitting children, just like sheep, will cause them to become frightened of you and in many instances to runaway or hit back.
  2. There is never enough affection in the world. A very simple technique for time is the affection prescription 10-20-10. Give a child 10 minutes of quality time and attention first thing in the morning, 20 minutes in the afternoon, and 10 in the evening. Following this prescription of time has proven to have a great impact on the most negative behavior.
  3. Encourage an IEP in the classroom developed an understanding of the child’s stress and fear. This may assist in addressing such vital areas as homework, playground, peer interaction, lunchtime, and physical education. All common areas of reduced structure and increased stress.
  4. Educate yourself regarding the impact of stress and trauma on families. Try not to scapegoat your child for their difficulties, but rather take responsibility for creating the environment necessary for healing his hurtful experiences. There are many resources available. A few of note are: www.postinstitute.com; www.oxytocincentral.com; www.ChildTraumaAcademy.org; www.traumaresources.org and www.reactiveattachmentdisorderparenting.com
  5.  Seek support. Parenting a child with trauma history can take its toll on the best of parent. Seek out a support system for occasional respite care, discussing of issues, and the sharing of a meal. Such small steps can go a long ways during particularly stressful times.

Never forget that you are a great parent. During times of stress you won’t always feel like it, but both you and your child were meant to be together. Your child will teach you far more about yourself than you may have ever realized without him. Give yourself time to refuel, connect, and communicate.

Understanding and Healing Trauma in the Adopted Child part 2 of 3

by Bryan Post

Though trauma is often times considered a very complicated experience to understand, provided here are five very concrete steps that you can take as the parent of an adopted child to help begin the process of integration in your child’s life. This will enable your child to begin the process healing the past hurts he has experienced.

  1. Trauma creates fear and stress sensitivity in children. Even for a child adopted from birth, their internal systems may already be more sensitive and fearful than that of a child remaining with his biological parents. You must also consider the first nine months in which the child developed. These early experiences as well could have major implications.
  2. Recognize and be more aware of fear being demonstrated by your child. Be more sensitive and tuned in to the small signals given such as clinging, whining, not discriminating amongst strangers, etc. All are signs of insecurity which can be met by bringing the child in closer, holding, carrying, and communicating to the child that he is feeling scared, but you will keep him safe.
  3. Recognize the impact of trauma in your own life. One of the single greatest understandings parents can have is a self-understanding. Research tells us the far more communication occurs non-verbally than verbally. Understanding the impact of past trauma in your own life will help you become more sensitive to when your reaction are coming from a place other than your existing parent/child experience. Re-experiencing past trauma is common when parents are placed in an ongoing stressful environment.
  4. Reduce external sensory stimulation when possible. Decrease television, overwhelming environments, number of children playing together at one time, and large family gatherings. When necessary that these events take place, keep the child close, explain to him that he may become stressed and he can come to you when needed.
  5. Do Time-In instead of Time-out. Rather than sending the stressed out and scared child to the corner to think about his behavior, bring him into to you and help him to feel safe and secure. Internally this will then permit him the ability to think about his actions. Though time-in is not a time for lecturing, it will allot your child an opportunity to calm his stress and then think more clearly. Another effective key is to let the child decide how much time-in he needs.

Understanding the Impact of Trauma on the Adopted Child part 1 of 3

by Bryan Post

Adopted at the age of six months, Joseph was a fussy and sometimes hard to soothe infant. When Joseph reached the age of two and began to bite the other children in daycare, they chalked it up to the dreaded two-year old stage of which everyone seems okay with. The teachers raved about how smart he was. By the time he was six the increasing duration of the school day seemed almost more than he could bear. Sometimes screaming for hours at a time, Joseph would do no work and then would spend the remainder of the day in isolation. Eventually Joseph began to stack up a list of schools attended and suspended from. By the time Joseph had hit the 5th grade his increasingly violent outburst coined with outward defiance had gained him two different stays at local residential treatment centers. Not knowing where else to turn or what else to do, and after failed attempts at therapy, and more than eight psychiatric medications had proved of little benefit other than causing Joseph to appear “zombie-like,” Pat and Robert felt their only other option was to send Joseph to a boys boarding school.

Though not always leading to a disruption or out-of-home placement, many adoptive families struggle for years to create the peaceful family they had dreamed of. Regrettably, one of the main barriers preventing such family harmony is one of the least understood when it comes to understanding the plight of the adopted child. The barrier is trauma.

Whether adopted from birth or later in life, all adopted children have experienced some degree of trauma. Trauma is any stressful event which is prolonged, overwhelming, or unpredictable. Scientific research now reveals that as early as the second trimester the human fetus is capable of auditory processing and in fact, is capable of processing rejection in utero. This early experience is generally the child’s original trauma. From that point forward many more traumas may occur in the child’s life. These include premature birth, inconsistent caretakers, abuse, neglect, chronic pain, long-term hospitalizations with separations from the mother, and parental depression. Such life events interrupt a child’s emotional development, sometimes even physical development, subsequently interrupting his ability to tolerate stress in meaningful relationships with parents and peers.

On The Economy of Our Lives by Bryan Post

On the Economy of Our Lives

Dictionary.com offers several meanings of the word economy, two of which are: the disposition or regulation of the parts or functions of any organic whole; an organized system or method; and the efficient, sparing, or concise use of something: an economy of effort; an economy of movement.

The key to a more regulated and efficient society equally lies within the home, as the home also is reflected in society. When Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world", he spoke a simple truth, one that empowers us to seek to be an efficient and sparing part of a greater whole no matter how inefficient and unsparing that whole might appear to be. We matter. You matter. From within your home you can make a difference in the world. The energy and peace you can create gets pushed forward into the greater universe affecting everyone else. When you are in conflict, your ability to be efficient, sparing and working towards regulation impacts the greater universal system.

If you have ever found yourself in a "I don't care and I don't care that I don't care" (personal economy bankruptcy) state of mind, you know how difficult it is to love someone -- especially a challenging child. Karyn Purvis of TCU found that in blood testing exhausted, angry and desperate foster parents, there was a great lack of hormonal chemistry available for self-regulation. And no amount of " a good talking to" was going to help these parents, unless it was to say "take a week off of parenting, gets lots of rest and nutrition and be of good cheer". For each time we struggle, we are challenged with an opportunity to grow, to learn, renew and move forward. If you find yourself thinking or saying "I don't care" and believe it, you have missed a valuable opportunity for growth. If you think or say "I don't care therefore I must need rest, relaxation, breathing and nutrition", then you got the message loud and clear. Lesson learned.

Everyone is aware of the stress our economy is under at this time, more debt than income. The whole system is in a state of dysregulation. The parts are working against one another trying to survive. Cellular biologist Bruce Lipton states that in times of stress our cellular system constricts into survival. Yet the bodymind system only knows two states: thriving or surviving. In the past number of years our economic system has worked neither sparingly or efficient and now it has caught up with us.

This is the economy of our lives. The world we live in. We are challenged to be more efficient, more sparing, more concise in our contributions to the organic whole. Save your words during an argument, conserve your energy, move within and listen rather than expend. Save, accrue, and then spend wisely your words and actions of love. Utilize your energy efficiently and sparingly for a time will come that requires it and you will be ready to meet that challenge.

Always Choose Love,

B.
