Best self-help books for women and men: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook -- What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing by Bruce Perry (Author), Maia Szalavitz (Author)
The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog is a really good book about how children exposed to trauma are injured, and often for life.
For many readers who take the lessons in this book about how childhood abuse, neglect, and natural disaster damages a child's life both in the moment and in the future, this book will connect the dots in one's own life or in the lives of other family members. In other words, it makes it perfectly clear how a damaged child often becomes a damaged adult.
For many people, this awareness about how their childhood experience impacts on their current adult life is not clear -- for some, the connection is even denied. They suffer from anxiety, depression, and lack of confidence and they have no idea why.
For example, I have counseled countless adults who actually have believed that going through a contentious divorce as a child and then bouncing back-and-forth between warring parents has had no effect upon them. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Upon reading this book, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook, it becomes perfectly clear that childhood trauma not only bruises, but for many scars.
The greatest damage typically is emotional and in that sense, far more than physical injuries. In other words, even physical or sexual abuse includes emotional abuse.
Physical abuse, at its core, contains emotional abuse: The child wonders, "How can the one I love and depend on hurt me and seemingly even hate me!"
The old adage, "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names can never hurt me," is flat out wrong.
Sadly, life trauma is a reality for far too many children. As well, there are natural disasters that also injured children such as the death of a parent.
In this book, the stories of childhood trauma run the gamut of covering the many ways children are hurt.
So what is the value in this book for people who are not therapists and tasked with healing children?
There are two main takeaways for the lay reader: 1) How long lasting childhood trauma is and how it accounts for adult depression and other emotional disturbances and 2) When caring for children it is necessary it is to provide an abundance of love and positive attention.
This best self-help books for women and men: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook -- What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing, is a must read for all parents who are dedicated to "do right" for their child(ren) -- although for some the true stories may be difficult to face.
Yes, life can be cruel for many children. However, knowledge about how impressionable children are will help many avoid unnecessary bad and replace it with good parenting.
