Highly Sensitive Parent Survival Tips from Megan Tietz

Who hasn’t felt overwhelmed from time to time when dealing with a house full of kids? It can be rough on anyone, but for the Highly Sensitive Person, it can become a daily struggle.

I recently came across this blog by Megan Tietz, where she shares her personal account of a mom on sensory overload, and how she copes: http://www.sortacrunchy.net/sortacrunchy/2014/06/survival-guide-for-the-highly-sensitive-parent-.html

I thought this was worth sharing.penguin
Elsewhere, advice for overwhelmed parents may include tips such as “avoid chaotic environments and get plenty of rest.” Not likely in homes with young children! Instead, Megan’s list of survival tips are actually do-able.

Takeaway: the more parents can be calm and action-oriented (as opposed to reactive), the more effective and loving parenting becomes. And isn’t that what matters?
