Publisher's Summary

Growing up and learning the facts of life, children of PTSD parents can struggle for a lifetime, having had their developmental years marred by confusion and grief. Lack of open communication from a child's point of view may lead to costly therapy and the future expenses of children damaged by PTSD, as in broken homes, toxic relationships, and poor life choices.
Through the authorial voice of navy veteran Anita Miranda, Nana's Helping Hands with PTSD presents a uniquely nurturing perspective as Anita shares her journey from active duty in the United States military and as a civilian on the family impact of PTSD. This groundbreaking, resourceful guide allows parents and caregivers to empower their children with invaluable defenses against the negative, life-altering impact of children of PTSD parents.
Parents who are educated about the effects of PTSD and learn the facts can give their kids correct information and clear up any misconceptions. As a role model for your kids, your views on PTSD and its symptoms may strongly influence how they react and cope. If you've ever looked for family storybooks to help share a sensitive subject, such as living with a disability, with your child, you know how hard they can be to find.
Nana Knows is a true-to-life series inviting children into a safe place to ask questions and receive answers they will understand. In the story the neighborhood Nana is disabled yet very wise and compassionate. She welcomes any of the children to visit for milk and cookies. What they leave with is coping skills leading to the release of blame, guilt, and feeling helpless.
Twins Bobby and Bella show up distraught on Nana's doorstep one afternoon, shocked at their mother's behavior and feeling like their mother no longer loves them. They feel that they did something wrong.
