Trauma can have long lasting effects on all aspects of your child’s life, whether your child remembers the trauma or not. They could experience physical symptoms such as tension, stomach issues, crying or difficulty sleeping, and emotional symptoms such as anxiety, fearfulness, depression or shame.
