Back-to-School can be a stressful time for teens, especially if they are highly sensitive. In this week’s video, find out if your teen has the trait of high sensitivity and what the number one thing is that you can do as a parent to help them manage the stress of back-to-school time.
Many adults and teens who are prone to stress, overwhelm or STRONG emotions end up wondering if "something is wrong with me"... but these symptoms can be easily explained by a completely normal biological trait.
This week’s video explains what the trait is and how to manage it so that you can stop feeling “broken” and start letting your natural gifts shine through!
We are often hard on ourselves anytime some trait or aspect of our being (either physical or psychological) falls outside of the norm or the societal ideal. Maybe we are not skinny enough (for girls), or muscular enough (for guys), or outgoing enough, or positive/upbeat enough, or mentally tough enough. We label the non-conforming part of us as “bad” or “broken”, and consequently try to fix it. But what if it doesn’t need fixing?
In this week’s blog I discuss how we often mis-label certain traits as “bad” or “broken” and then make ourselves even more miserable when we try to fix something that doesn’t need fixing.
