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.

Is it hormones or is my kid Highly Sensitive?

 

As your child grows into a teenager, how do you really feel about it?

No shame here. We were all teenagers once, and it’s safe to say that NONE of us would go back in time to live through puberty again...

Be honest.

Are you holding your breath because you can’t imagine adding hormones on top of mood swings? Or adding their physical appearance on top of the list of preexisting worries?

And the peer pressure… learning how to be yourself and fit in at the same time…

When they already didn’t feel like they fit in…

Watch the video above as I knock out the phrase "It's just hormones, they'll grow out of it!"

Because it's not just hormones, and they won’t grow out of it. It's something else.

Your stinky kid doesn’t want to shower. Now what?

 

You’ve talked to your sensitive kid or teen about why it’s important to bathe and you still have a stinky kid. What gives?

Your instinct as a parent is to tell your child WHY their body needs to stay clean. 

You've read advice like:

“Explain the consequences of not bathing!“

“Just tell them to suck it up!”  

Here’s the thing. It’s never logic that holds your kid back from taking action.

  1. Your HSC already knows why it’s important to bathe... and they know they stink.
  2. Most Highly Sensitive kids and teens are bright... they really do get it.

  3. There is more to your kid than disobeying this mandatory act of self care...

Because you’re not addressing the actual problem...
