Ameé is not Mother of The Year. Nor is she is a parenting expert with degrees in child psychology. Ameé, in fact, failed at being a mother.
Her path to parenthood started with genuine intention and optimism. But unable to understand and manage her inner battles, her marriage ended and she left her husband of ten years as the custodial parent of their two small children.
For nearly seven years, Ameé was the "Weekend Mom" until circumstances changed and a wiser, willing Ameé was reunited with her kids and became a full-time single parent. At this point, she knew failure was no longer an option.
Today, shouldered by the deeper understanding of childhood experiences and their influence on brain development, Ameé seeks to continue to help herself heal & understand her former limitations as a parent.
Amee is now an advocate for other parents who are struggling with their own childhood neglect, abuse and other traumatic experiences. But, by sharing her personal story, she hopes she can help other families break the chain that links generations together through the succession of poorly understood actions and their unintended results.
Topics include personal development, childhood development and parenting, as well as the effects of trauma on our health.
