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?

Do You Ever Feel Like Having A Child Ruined Your Life?

 

Have you ever felt like having a kid ruined your life?

I KNOW this statement is incredibly controversial…

However, when you work with parents whose children are suffering so badly with daily meltdowns like I do, 

It’s a statement that we hear frequently.

A statement that, of course, is the most shameful thing a parent can admit to.

Because anyone with a pulse and a drop of empathy knows that even having that thought for a fleeting moment ONCE must affect your relationship with your kid… 

And their relationship with themselves.

And since we only work with awesome parents, who always have awesome kids, 

Admitting something like this is not only gut-wrenching.

It can be paralyzing.

But don’t fret just yet. We have the answers you need. Tune in to hear more.

My Kid Was Fine Last Year… Why is EVERYTHING Stressing Them Out Now?

 

You always think you’ve finally figured out what triggers a meltdown…

Until the sun rises again and a new issue comes with it.

It’s hard being a parent, we know this.

But it can almost feel like your kid is just being dramatic,

Or doing this on purpose to get attention. 

If these are thoughts YOU’VE had, you’re not alone.

And you’re not a bad parent either.

As an expert on the Highly Sensitive trait, I can tell you straight up that your kid is NOT doing this on purpose.

Children cannot manipulate their parents.

They don’t have the internal hardwiring in their brains to do so.

So, why does your kid HATE places and events they used to love?

Why do they throw a fit now or totally refuse, when they used to go willingly?

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.

The One Thing You're Missing With Toilet Troubles

 

The most dreaded sentence: “Mom, I have to poop.”

Who knew there would be so much emotion around using the bathroom?

It’s something we all do… we don’t really have a choice.

Yet, your HSC is struggling BIG TIME when it comes to number 2 (or sometimes, number 1).

Since you’ve been a human longer than your kid has, you understand the human body.

When you get the urge to go…

You go. 

And then you move on.

There’s nothing more to it.

Tune in to learn why it may be so hard for your HSC, and what this really means.

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.

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.

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.

And since your search history is what apps use to target ads, 

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.

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,”
