Despite Childhood Trauma, Parents and Kids Can Transcend Fear and Return To Their Authentic Self

Despite Childhood Trauma, Parents and Kids Can Transcend Fear and Return To Their Authentic Self

July 23, 2021

Terri Kozlowski helps us understand that children are born unafraid and how to keep them fearless.

Terri Kozlowski lives in Georgia and just published her first book “Raven Transcending Fear” in February which is part memoir, part self-help book. 

It's her raw and personal story of childhood abuse and diving deep into her terror before ultimately getting comfortable with fear and transcending it.

Though Terri had loving people in her life, her mother was abusive and enabled others to traumatize her. To get drugs, her mother allowed strangers to assault her 11-year-old body sexually. She then left her and her sister alone on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Terri’s childhood left her filled with fear until she embarked on a spiritual journey and learned the skills of empowerment, which have allowed her to transcend the fear and regain a connection with the Divine.

Everyone is born fearless and knowing who they are and what their purpose is.

However, life experience or abuse may instill fear and break the connection with our authentic selves. Through this memoir, readers will go on the journey with her as Terri moves from a life ruled by fear to fearlessness.

Terri shares with us why she believes "Children aren't our possessions."

We all come to this earth knowing who we are, knowing who we are authentically meant to be and have a purpose in life. Then, we come into the unknown...our family. There is something our family is here to teach us.

Terri is married with a son and grandchild, discovered her Native American Alaskan roots and is a passionate certified life coach, empowerment coach, and artist.

Live Q & A with Dr. Borba (Questions from Parents and Teachers)

July 16, 2021

A few months ago, I hosted a virtual book club for a month with teachers and parents. We read and discussed four chapters in Dr. Borba’s book called “Thrivers” - The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine. Including 7 Teachable skills that set happy, healthy, high-performing Kids Apart.

We read about: Self-Confidence, Empathy, Self-Control and Optimism.

And...Dr. Borba joined us for one of our meetings and answered our questions. I thought you would love to hear this one of a kind interview with her. We loved having her join us! 

The book club was amazing. Teachers and parents were sharing their insights around the chapters we discussed. We were inspired by each other. We found a place where we could share, learn and grow together. There was something really special about it. I loved it so much, I’m going to launch another book club in the next few months. Stay tuned if you are interested to join me.

In this episode I’m going to lead you through a simple mindfulness lesson that I practice with my students at school. This lesson is a part of the Mindful Schools curriculum for teaching kids Mindfulness.

In 2019 I took two courses through Mindful Schools and began teaching students in my school their Mindfulness Lessons. The kids responded really well to these lessons, that I wanted to share one with you in this episode.

Mindfulness is being aware of the present moment without any judgment. You can listen by yourself or with your child as I guide you through these mindful moments.
