<li style=”text-align: center;”>For me this article was totally on target. This weekend I watched as my son was told he couldn’t have his tablet for 10 minutes until church was finished and he went ballistic, fighting all of us, throwing anything he could reach, ran out of the house and down the road and then hid in his closet screaming. The fight, flight or freeze was acted out before me and I saw all 3. The idea of a new diagnosis called “developmental trauma disorder” would really fit him. I was intrigued by the biology behind this and my questions were pragmatic. How does one break the strong bond between the hippocampus and the amygmala caused by increase in cortisone? ( especially once it has been triggered without damage to the child). I am not sure that both questions are needed to be asked. Yes, what has happened to you?
