After discovering that Shelley’s youngest child had verbal communication delays and later being diagnosed as having Autistic Spectrum Conditions, she chose to look at life through the eyes of the child. Shelley was guided to look deeper into understanding him on a soul level and was intuitively learning new strategies to assist with his unpredictable emotions. This naturally created the space to support his siblings in the same way by exploring deeper beneath the surface and discovering that they both found it incredibly difficult to learn in todays’ mainstream school environments. Shelley embraces the spiritual and human aspects of life as a parent, as a fresh perspective was needed for her family. She learned of the impact early trauma had on her style of parenting and so it became her mission to reach other parents walking the same path.
In this book, Shelley talks about her mental health journey and how a holistic approach to recovery and energy healing helped her make sense of childhood trauma and experienced birth trauma. She explains how parenting opened her eyes to a broken education system and how a ‘one size fits all’ approach within mainstream school doesn’t address the needs of every individual. Each child should be entitled to embrace a unique learning experience.
