Your HSC is Not As Fragile As You Think

 

When we have babies, we learn how incredible the miracle of creating a human can be.

It is amazing to see our fragile infants grow into toddlers, children, teens, and then adults.

But if your child is Highly Sensitive, you may feel like that fragility hasn’t left your kid yet.

And I’m not talking about physical development.

I’m talking about kids who still cry over spilt milk (literally) at 7 or 8 years old,

The same way they did when they were 2. 

Or kids who have meltdowns over what seems like everything…

Again, this is not the “terrible twos” we’re talking about here.

Kids who are stuck in the meltdown cycle feel like a ticking time bomb,

And parents of HSC’s stuck in this cycle are tip-toeing around their sensitive emotions,

Because you assume they’re too fragile to handle anything out of place.

Tune in to learn why your HSC is not as fragile as you think, and why it’s important to own that fact.

Is it Bad to Feel Embarrassed by Your HSC's Behaviors?

 

No matter how much we love our children,

We can feel embarrassed by their behavior. 

Whether it’s screaming their head off in a grocery store and crashing carts,

Or being rude to strangers by not using manners…

As a parent, it’s hard to watch sometimes.

On one hand, you know that you never want to make your child feel like they’re embarrassing you.

You don’t want THEM to feel the shame you are feeling.

And you might already feel guilty for being embarrassed in the first place.

But you can feel other parents' eyes burning a hole in the back of your head when your HSC is throwing themselves on the floor in Target.

So, is it bad to feel embarrassed by your HSC’s behavior? Tune in to find out.

When you get the urge to go…

You go. 

And then you move on.

There’s nothing more to it.

Do You Still Think That When Your Teen Is Yelling At You, They’re FINALLY Opening Up?

Uncategorized Jan 05, 2022
 

Do you still think that when your teen is yelling at you, they’re FINALLY opening up?

Because that actually couldn’t be further from the truth.

Today I’m going to debunk three myths about your teen,

And what it REALLY means when they are yelling at you.

You may be thinking, “Well Megghan, my kid shuts down …”

“...So when MY kid is yelling at me, it IS a good thing.”

Your kid runs up to their room and shuts you out,

Or their eyes glued on their screens whenever you’re around.

So yelling is the ONLY way they communicate with you.

And after months of trying to get them to open up… you’ll take it.

Let’s get it straight. Tune in to watch me and our Teen Expert Autumn Brennan debunk three myths about communicating with your teen.

How the Meltdowns Stole Christmas

 

Do you suffer from anxiety around Christmas time?

I think we all do, but when you’re a parent of an HSC struggling with meltdowns, 

You are probably thinking at least three times as much as the average parent.

“I better make sure each sibling has an equal amount of gifts.”

“We’ll have to come up with an excuse to leave the Christmas party early so Sarah can watch A Christmas Story again.”

“I’ll take the long way to Grandma’s to avoid passing by the toy store, otherwise we’ll have to stop again.”

On top of the grocery list, gifts to mail out, and Christmas card addresses…

It’s no wonder you are feeling anxious. 

The Grinch was anxious around Christmas time too, but for a different reason.

Tune in to learn more about what the story of the Grinch can tell us about our Highly Sensitive children.

Do the Meltdowns Make You Feel Like the Lockdown Will Never End?

 

When you feel like certain things are not possible for your family BECAUSE of meltdowns…

It feels isolating.

Most of us have lived through an actual lockdown. 

But when you limit your family or yourself from doing things because you feel like your kid can’t handle it...

It feels like it never really ended. 

And it feels like you’re doing something wrong when you’re just trying to protect your kid.

I get it. It’s exhausting for you to wait for the explosion when you try to do fun things.

Plus, your kid doesn’t want to have a bad time either. 

Tune in to learn why skipping the trips to the Lego Store is not the answer...

Has Your HSC Stopped Taking You Seriously?

Uncategorized Dec 08, 2021
 

Sometimes it feels like our kids go from age 3 to 13 in a matter of seconds.

As a parent, it’s confusing when we are playing with our 5 year old and they say, “Mom, that’s dumb. I’m not doing that.”

When yesterday, they didn’t think it was dumb at all.

This also goes for helping our kids feel better.

Telling them “don’t worry” worked when they were 3. 

But now your kid is 5… and saying “don’t worry” doesn’t work.

In fact, it probably pisses them off.

And the more you try to help your HSC through their challenges,

The more you are pushed away.

It’s overwhelming… because you know in your gut, it’ll only get worse.

So what SHOULD you do when your HSC doesn’t take you seriously? Tune in the find out.

The Difference Between the Highly Sensitive Trait and Autism

 

Let’s get one thing straight.

Autism Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Processing Sensitivity are two different things.

If your child is Highly Sensitive, that does not mean they are on the Autism Spectrum.

I’m referring to something I read a few weeks ago while scrolling away on Instagram.

I saw a “Wellness Coach” claim that the Highly Sensitive Personality trait is just a way for therapists to downplay someone’s autistic traits…

Which is simply not true… 

And science proves that.

It’s important to note that this individual in particular was not speaking from their own experience of an autism misdiagnosis…

So this is an example of how harmful (and easy) it can be to spread false information.


Tune in for a scientific and historical lesson on the difference between ASD and SPS.

How to Spot a Fake Parenting Coach

 

Fake coaches and scam programs are not talked about enough.

You can’t scroll through Facebook for five seconds without finding someone selling their “life changing” program.

If you’ve been searching for help on Google,
 

I.e “How can I stop meltdowns?”

You’re probably flooded with options.

But as you know, the internet is full of information.

It gives strangers the opportunity to position themselves as an “expert” by calling themselves one.

Tune in to learn more about how to spot a fake parenting coach, and why it’s incredibly important to know exactly who you’re working with.
