Episode 248

I am a highly sensitive person, and for me, raising kids with big emotions isn’t easy. I can be overwhelmed by my kids’ big emotions and by the stress of a busy schedule. And sometimes, being a sensitive parent even creates a direct conflict with my personal parenting values.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What it’s like to be a highly sensitive parent (I think you’ll relate to at least some of this!)
  • How I use my “sensitive” qualities to my advantage
  • How we can still parent from our values in stressful or overwhelming situations
