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.

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.
