    Thank-you for sharing your journey. I haven’t been diagnosed with PTSD but it has been suggested as a possible root cause of my anxiety. But as a parent it’s always a challenge. I like your son’s view of the changing “normal.” Take care.

    Thanks for sharing. It is such a courageous act, especially with trauma where we have been taught not to share.

    At first I wasn’t going to change names and locations, but my publisher pointed out that I could be sued. That got me thinking, and then I thought, not only that, but the abuser might decided to start stalking me again. So, pen name it is.

    Thats great. I’ll check it out.
    I use a pen name too. In my book (on the publishing page) I say I changed all the names and locations to protect the innocent and not so innocent.

    Thanks for asking. My book, A Good Little Girl by Kenzie O’Hara (had to use a pen name for protection), is available on, Barnes &, I can only hope my journey helps other avoid similar situations.

    In my book, I also talk about the village raising a child. Unfortunately, no one gathered around this little girl, and due to the neglect, I then made disastrous life-changing decisions that not only affected me, but my children.
    People need people.

    I worry about that too. But my kids are well-adjusted and thriving young adults now. I think as long as there is that unconditional love and acceptance that goes a long way. But, still, I worry too.
    5 kids is awesome. Thats a busy household!

    I have five children. I’ve always believed that I will be a successful parent if my children don’t have to go through as much therapy as I do. 😉 Of course, I avoid therapy. Trying to find a doctor who doesn’t have his hand on the doorknob the whole time is difficult. In both mental and physical health. I love my kids so much. I always fear I have scarred them in some way.

    I Definitely think we can break the cycle of trauma and abuse! It takes a loving parents, unconditional love, and a community of support (community of 1 or many)
    You will know when the time is right, and you will make sure you do the best you can. And, I totally understand your trepidation. ❤️

    I don’t know how to get to the point where that old “sense of foreshortened future part” – plus worries that my children will inherit the disabilities that run in my family and have played such a role in trauma in my family – don’t scare me out of having a child. I want to think I’d do a better job than my family history, but what if the same challenges were present? Would I really do any better, or would I crack under the pressure like previous generations? Is it even fair to bring a child into a family with a history of our genetic and trauma problems… I have a blog post half-finished on this fear, but it always hurts to much to finish…

    Oh when she was little it was so easy. So many other moms who were seeking answers and looking for the right way to do this and that. Now the kids are older and we are on our own. Thank you for bringing this topic up. It is much appreciated

    Thanks for sharing! It is a struggle to find the balance and the balance is often so fluid. I think how many resources we had with mommy and me classes when the kids are little and it was easier to talk about parenting. When they get older and if the parents are ill there doesnt seem to be as much open conversation. Glad we’re talking. ❤️


  26. bethanyk November 9, 2017 / 6:18 pm

    You sure summed up my life right here. I am having a very difficult time raising a daughter and having PTSD and trying my best to be authentic but not overwhelming with my own “stuff” while being a good role model. It is a balance that I am lately not doing so well at. It is very very difficult. Thank you for writing about it.

    A clear and compassionate explanation of the impact of trauma on family. I just heard about a new book on parenting with ptsd yesterday. This helpful information is so needed. Thanks for sharing it Alexis. ❤️

    “. I learned that I had to learn to trust the process, ride the waves, and keep my eye on why I wanted to heal”.: yes. Focus is key and trusting the process work in every aspect of life. Thanks for sharing your story and for being brave.

    I wish you well. and wellness. I think I never had children because my inner world was already stimulating enough due to my childhood. All I’ve ever wanted was freedom to be who I want when I want. I may have been this way anyway but here we are. Every family has something. How you and your family work with it is actually a gift to your kids. There will always be problems and adjustments to be made in life. If you make healthy and honest decisions throughout your kids learn how to make healthy and honest decisions.
