You’re not alone in navigating the mystery of individual personalities and parenting challenges. Every child is a puzzle, and what brings joy and focus to one can throw another into a whirlwind of emotions. Investing hours into crafting the perfect family activity can feel like a total miss when it doesn’t fit with your child’s unique needs. Trust me, I’ve walked this road!
As a licensed professional counselor and personality trainer, I thought I had the ultimate toolbox. Yet, when it came to one of my children, who had specific sensory processing needs and mental health challenges, even I felt like a novice.
Even with my background, I faced moments of feeling inadequate as a mom. We tried “all the things,” from medical professionals and numerous therapies, to exhaustive parenting research, and let me tell you, we reached a point of parental burnout. Sound familiar?
But here’s the good news: We discovered some parenting techniques, game-changing strategies, and practical insights that truly worked, even with the challenging behavior and intense emotions. These parenting strategies sparked meaningful change, not just for my complex child but for our whole family unit, adding layers of understanding and deepening our connections.
It was an answer to prayer.
If you’re wearing out, navigating the storms of parenting an emotionally intense, or highly sensitive child without a map, I get it. And I’m here to offer you a lifeline. My mission is to spare families the exhaustion and heartache of doing it alone, equipping you with practical tips and tools and a tailored approach to understanding your uniquely wired child.
By combining an in-depth understanding of personalities, sensory processing, and childhood mental health issues with a deliberate and intentional parenting strategy, I’ve crafted the iHeart framework that empowers parents. It’s about more than just surviving.
