Adventure of the Week
I share our adventure snowboarding and skiing in the mountains.
Our Little Obsession
I share the new Bucket System class, which provides the soft structure you need for home care, self-care, and homeschooling.
Sensitive kids are the canaries in the coal mine. They feel all the feelings for everyone else in the family system and sometimes reflect them back in ways that ensure the issues can no longer be ignored. I was often labeled as “sensitive” as though it was a weakness, but it has become one of my greatest superpowers (it always was).
Neurodiversity: We talk about how to let our sensitive kids know that this way of being is a gift and a strength, even though it brings with it some challenges.
Cues: We explain why it is especially important to be able to read your sensitive child’s cues.
Discipline: We cover what style of discipline works well with a sensitive child.
Playfulness: We share how playfulness is extra helpful with a sensitive child.
Language: We discuss what type of language we have found resonates with sensitive children.
Q & A
We answer the question of how to help children who are sensitive to media like movies, shows, and books navigate that world and find things that appeal to them.
