Helping your children

This booklet is for parents or care-givers who are serving, transitioning, or ex-serving members of the ADF and are managing the impacts of trauma.

You might have been through trauma yourself, or it might be your partner or ex-partner who has experienced trauma. Either way, this booklet will help you to understand how the effects of that trauma can impact on your children, and your parenting.

You’ll find advice for helping your children understand what’s going on in your family, and for how you can help your children to cope.
