Choosing Sports Over Meltdowns… the Wrong Thing to Do?

 

Changing from soccer to an individual sport doesn’t end the meltdown cycle.

If your kid is in a team sport,

And the hustle and bustle, along with the quick pivoting of many teammates is overwhelming…

It’s tempting for you to throw in the towel with that sport.

Try something new.

But you already did that… right?

Especially if your child has after game meltdowns.

Or worse, mid game aggression. 

Changing sports based on your child’s emotion is a short-sighted solution.

Watch to find out why.

Should You Teach Your HSC Not to Care What People Think?

 

Opinions are like armpits. 

Everyone has them, but we only think that each others’ stink.

Has anyone ever made you feel like your Highly Sensitive child is TOO rambunctious?

Maybe your kid gets too hyper and accidentally breaks their iPad.

Or maybe they start running around and screaming at 10pm and won’t stop.

Having a child that is bursting with joy occasionally is normal,

But if your HSC can’t make a playdate because they are know as a tornado of destruction,

That isn’t going to make them feel good.

It’s hard enough feeling different from other kids.

But to be told you are TOO MUCH makes you want to shrink into the smallest person possible.

And you see your HSC has a gift of BIG joy that is a little too big to contain…

Why can’t others see that?

When Your HSC's Imagination Runs Wild...

 

Your HSC’s Imagination and Their Emotions: A Recipe for Disaster..?

So, you know your kid is gifted with a rich imagination. 

Instead of just telling your kid that rain makes rainbows, your sensitive kid probably wants to know exactly why that happens…

What purpose it serves…

And how it works.

This is all good and fun, but what happens when their imagination tips to the dark end of the spectrum?

For example, your kid sees a scary commercial advertising a Halloween store opening in your area.

Now they’re afraid of the television… 

Or if your kid is a little older, they see a commercial about a medication for a disease.

The next thing you know, they’re obsessed with looking up symptoms of that disease to make sure they don't have it…

 

Tune in to learn why this is a more serious problem than you think.

Is it hormones or is my kid Highly Sensitive?

 

As your child grows into a teenager, how do you really feel about it?

No shame here. We were all teenagers once, and it’s safe to say that NONE of us would go back in time to live through puberty again...

Be honest.

Are you holding your breath because you can’t imagine adding hormones on top of mood swings? Or adding their physical appearance on top of the list of preexisting worries?

And the peer pressure… learning how to be yourself and fit in at the same time…

When they already didn’t feel like they fit in…

Watch the video above as I knock out the phrase "It's just hormones, they'll grow out of it!"

Because it's not just hormones, and they won’t grow out of it. It's something else.
