The Thief That Stole Thanksgiving

 

Tis the season of good food and gratitude!

When you go around the family table and ask what everyone is grateful for,

Do you find yourself bracing for the possibility of a meltdown...?

Maybe you’re not even there yet.

Maybe you’re still trying to get your HSC to come out of their room and say hello to their cousins,

Or trying to get them to lose the attitude with Grandpa that they suddenly have,

Or simply put on their shoes to leave the house…

Whichever stage you feel stuck on, you’re not alone.

Family gatherings are stressful during the holidays, no matter how much you love your family.

Tune in if you’re nervous about the holidays... because Thanksgiving is already NEXT WEEK.

If you’ve been searching for help on Google,
 

I.e “How can I stop meltdowns?”

When we make the decision to have children, we accept the inevitable.

Parenting makes you strong, but it shakes you to your core.

That’s a fact.

Raising a kid isn’t a cakewalk.

Especially when your kid needs a little more attention than your nephew did.

Not only because society pivots our thinking to mean different = bad.

But because you feel guilty for not knowing how to do all the things right away.

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.

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?
