Feeling Buddies: Traumatic Brain Injuries & Meltdowns #FB4F. Teaching self-regulation of behaviors, behavioral management
This post is sponsored by Feeling Buddies but all my thoughts and struggles are my own.

Raising a child with a traumatic brain injury is extremely difficult when it comes to regulating behavioral and emotional roller coasters.

My 13 year old daughter is an absolutely joy.  She can be extremely sweet, loving and full of sunshine and joy but when she is going through emotions and unable to regulate and express herself- it becomes a painful reminder of the fact that her brain is severely injured.  Many times, there is no rhyme or reason for her outbursts and many times, it's due to the brain damage.
