I am declaring war on your Sensitive child’s obsession, because you don’t feel like you can...
I understand why you don’t feel up to that battle. Playing the same song over and over again might stop the emotional eruption, right?
But there is more to your kid wearing the same stinky shoes with holes in the balls of the feet when they have BRAND new ones,
Or spending another family outing with their face buried in their screen...
It’s not about being obsessed.
Let’s break it down so you can create your own reality by changing this pattern at the root.
Tune in as I dissect the Do’s and Don’t in handling your sensitive child’s obsessions.

Let’s get two things straight.
#1 You’re not a bad parent.
#2 Screen time is not a coping skill.
Using a screen to distract your thoughts does not shut your brain off.
It puts your mind on pause.
There is a difference between regulated and checked out. Screens help you check out.
Your child has a negative emotion,
pulls out their screen to distract themselves from that feeling,
stacks the emotional information they absorb from the screen PLUS the negative emotion,
and the original negative emotion is NEVER dealt with…
...Only leading to Meltdown City.
When you pull out the tablet, you’re telling your kid to distract themselves.
“Distract yourself from your tantrum because I can’t deal with it, and neither can you.”
I know you do NOT want to be that parent… that’s why you are here.
