KINDERTRAUMA® is about the movies, books, and toys that scared you when you were a kid. It’s also about kids in scary movies, both as heroes and villains. And everything else that’s traumatic to a tyke!

Through reviews, stories, artwork, and testimonials, we mean to remind you of all the things you once tried so hard to forget…


As a reader of KINDERTRAUMA® you are a part of KINDERTRAUMA®. We want to hear from you, the more unusual the tale the better. Remember to keep it short & sweet (a paragraph or less is nice), otherwise we will have to edit you. And although we love chopping things up, we’re not partial to having to do the extra work.

Also, please focus on one specific item, so we can better illustrate it. We are not looking for a laundry list or your life story or even the life story of your laundry list.

Please send your TRAUMAFESSIONS to us at kindertrauma [at] gmail dot com. Include how you would like to be attributed, and any link back information if relevant.
