All people have things that trigger them and cause them to become dis-regulated. But children from hard places have a very sensitive stress response system, which means they have a "hair pull" trigger or thin emotional margin. This can look like scary behaviors resulting from small stimuli.
"Trauma comes back as a reaction, not a memory." - Bessel van der Kolk
