Are the symptoms from ADHD or the meltdown cycle?
In a world where you can whip out your phone and Google whatever you want,
We are often a victim of information overload.
This can be especially challenging when you are trying to figure out what the heck is going on with your kid.
Between pinterest pins from mommy blogs giving out “expert” advice,
Clinicians evaluating your child based on a 30 minute conversation,
Your own gut knowing that that things you’re trying aren’t quite working,
And your mother in law’s unsolicited advice…
Not to mention that ANYONE can make a podcast now.
How can you really tell the difference between two similar looking diagnoses?
Today, I’m going to talk about ADHD and the Highly Sensitive Trait.

For families with high school aged teens:
It’s one of the top nightmares that a parent can experience.
Your kid gets kicked out of school.
Or maybe you’re just on edge 24/7, waiting for the day it happens.
Regardless of where you are, I don’t need to remind you that this is no way to live.
When you are in full on worry mode, you simply can’t be your best self.
Walking on eggshells around this problem doesn’t fix it either.
So let’s rewind.
If your child struggles with the daily or weekly meltdowns,
This can manifest in many different ways.
Sometimes, meltdowns can move from tears to anger between blinks.
Your kid could go from screaming to hitting and kicking a matter for seconds.
And you usually don’t even know where this aggression is coming from.
If this is happening at school, it’s even scarier to manage.
It usually involves multiple school officials,
Time outs, getting your red card pulled, getting sent to the principal's office,
All things that feel...
Where do we draw the line with school?
Helping your child get used to the pandemic school day is hard enough, and if you’re parenting a Highly Sensitive Child, you need to be on your toes.
We speak to so many parents who report they’re lost in leading their children out of the fog of responsibilities of schooling behind a screen.
When you have a child who is experiencing intense emotions and you throw them into online school, there are a few things you need to pay attention to so this year doesn’t become a wash at best.
