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.

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.

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

Maybe you’re not even there yet.

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

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.

When You're Disappointed That Your Kid is an HSC...

Uncategorized Nov 03, 2021
 

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.

The hardest thing to wrap your head around is realizing that your kid is different.

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.

Tune in to learn how to help your child thrive and drop the parenting guilt along the way.

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?

 

Tune in LIVE to hear what to do when your HSC feels like “too much,”
