Why Does Your HSC HATE the Surprise Gift You Got Them?


What’s worse: surprising your kid with a gift that they hate, but they pretend to love?

Or surprising them with a gift you know they LOVE, but suddenly, they hate it?

Let me tell you a story. Our family recently adopted a puppy.

My kid loves animals and we knew that she wanted a puppy.

We knew there would be hyperactivity, lots of licking, jumping around, chewing on stuff, etc.

So when we brought it home,

I started thinking about how HSCs who are stuck in the meltdown cycle might react to this much sensory overload.

Would fear overshadowed excitement?

Suck up the joy completely before anyone knew what happened?

If your child is missing the skills to regulate their emotions and you are walking on eggshells around their explosions,

The meltdowns would take the lead here. 

So, what do you do if your HSC can’t handle surprises?

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