I need lots of help. I took in a relatives child and they have severe PTSD. The child is 5 and is having daily nightmares, will go from laughing to a look of anger, peeing pants and saying it is on purpose (one day was over 5 times and 3 back to back). The child hits siblings and screams alot. I know it is not their fault but I don't know how to help (hugs/kisses don't seem to be enough). My kids never did any of this. In fact their teenage attitudes are a welcome blessing as I know it will adjust once I take away the computer.
I am calling a counsler and pastor today as I didn't know the issues were this bad. Please don't judge me I was told we get months to transition instead we were given 4 days to go from 2 happy healthy kids to 4 and 2 with alot of emotional pain and suffering. Again I know it is not their fault I am asking for help on coping and helping to get them through it.
