As we continue our second season, PTSD, Jesus and YOU, we are highlighting PTSD in the stories of others and how they found Hope for the crooked roads of their trauma. Joining the Wednesdays With Watson Podcast is Troy McLaughlin, a fellow podcaster, but a parent of a child who’s trauma resulted in PTSD and all of its fall out.
Sometimes, as Christians, we think that statistics like 1:4 women will be assaulted and 1:7 men in their lifetime does not apply to us. As human and flawed parents want the best for their children–it is a special kind of hard when a statistic like this literally hits smack dab in the middle of a Christ centered–two parent home. Our guest today shares his family’s struggles and fall out from his child’s trauma, much of which they still very much live with today.
Because of the sensitive nature of the topic, we handle this story with the delicacy that it deserves and listeners will be nothing but encouraged as Troy shares the deep lessons of faith, forgiveness, love and moving on through the hard. This is Parenting PTSD
