38: How the Meltdowns Stole Christmas
In this episode, I talk about how parenting an HSC during the holidays can be challenging. 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. Tune in to learn more about what the story of the Grinch can tell us about our Highly Sensitive children.
