    Excellent! Love the thoughts on building relationship with kids even if we’re not talking about sexual abuse.
    Any advice on Dr and dentists when things like shots have to be done? Our pediatrician is great with the whole body autonomy thing but, for example, my son once had to have something pulled out of his nose and it was traumatic. This week he had to have dental work done that they put him under anesthesia for. Basically he was held down and gassed to sleep. It was horrible. I talked to him before and after about me being with him, I trusted the dr, and why it had to be done. Still, I’m afraid he’s been traumatized and what about his ability to be the boss of his own body?! Sigh

    Thanks!

    A thought about the #MeToo world. You point out that children and victims don’t tell when we don’t listen to them. Why does it seem like we are having more #MeToo moments? Maybe it is a sign of progress: more people are listening. More people are feeling that they can be heard.

    I think that social media has resulted in people having more validating experiences about their own thoughts and feelings. It’s something that is encouraging, at least to me.
