This book has taught me tremendous amount of information.
It taught me about myself, and most importantly how to treat and love my children.
EMPATHY game stronger!
Highly recommend!
Trauma and how the brain works.
The true stories he shares, are excellent, yet heartbreaking!
I love it when a book shifts your way of thinking, and helps you move forward.

This book was heartbreaking, informative, enlightening, and hopeful all at the same time. Even if you're not a psychology nerd or around children much, this is still a very worth-while read.

Winston was disappointed when he found out someone had already used the title he wanted for his memoir. He thinks he's a real boy, and insinuating he's a dog is just down right insulting. 🤣🐶

Day 5 of the sunburn, and I had to grab some essentials from the store. ? Thank you to those of you who recommended the "blue gel" and lidocaine. Freaking game changer! I feel like I'm in heaven right now.

Also, I feel like I shouldn't say that this is a good book because of the nature of it, but the book is really interesting and well written. It's a child psychologist who wrote about various traumatized children that he helped.

GingerAntics Be careful with the lidocaine. It can actually irritate skin. 5mo

AlaMich I feel for you. I‘ve had two serious sunburns in my life, both times with sun poisoning (nausea, blisters...). It‘s a special slice of hell. 🔥 5mo

Enlightening look on child development and the effects of trauma, especially the negative, later in adolescence and adulthood. I would highly recommend for those interested in mental disorders or destructive psychological behavior.

An inspiring read providing wonderful insight into the dynamic work with children and families who experience trauma. Dr. Perry's reflective stance on the cases presented highlights his incredible passion for bringing professionals together and his sensitivity to the children in his care. The discussion around the importance of community to the very survival and evolution of the human race is poignant in the increasing isolation we live in.
