First let me say, NOVEMBER!! Seriously?!! Where does the time go?? I realize it’s been quite awhile since my last post, and all I can say is that I’ve been traveling since mid September and ended up being away longer than anticipated, so my apologies for being off the radar for so long! That being said, I’ve no doubt that you all understand how life can take hold and side track you and consequently, I find myself catching up just before the holidays arrive! and then, it dawned on me… no matter what time of year it is, there always seems to be a holiday lurking around the corner. There’s also a ton of anticipation, fun that lie ahead! However, it’s not always so easy for our kids to take part in all the excitement. Bright colors, loud sounds, visual chaos and over stimulation and even claustrophobia…. so how does a parent deal with these challenges while still maintaining the joy of the holidays?? Here are some suggestions… but feel free to email me with your own fabulous ideas and suggestions! It’s always helpful to learn more creative ways to make a difference and empower one another!
1. Know your child’s patterns and anxiety levels. Be aware of what colors, sounds, textures and level of stimulation they can handle and use that as your guideline.
