PARENTING: Kids Have Stress Too

PARENTING: Kids Have Stress Too

I am a mom to a special child, and because of that I have be awarded to opportunity to take speciality parenting classes that help manage his special needs as well as tools that I can use with my daughter as well. I took a very interesting one last night about the stresses that kids face nad how to manage their levels in a healthy way.

A kids stressors are very different to grown ups, and honestly they may even seem silly to us, but that is what makes them unique and awesome little people, and it is our job as parents to help them figures out ways to calm down from the stress and emotional meltdown, as well as help them solve the problem themselves and not always fix it for them.

YOU NEED TO GET OK WITH YOUR CHILD NOT BEING OK

THE THREE “R” S

The three R’s are something that was brought up as a method to deal with kids in a certain way when those stressors become to much for them and we have those ever fabulous meltdowns that are a stressor for us parents.
1) Regulate
2) Relate
3) Reason
I know they seem like simple tasks but the key is you have to remain calm and level headed while doing these 3 steps. I mean could you calm down enough to listen to reason while the person who is supposed to be calming you down is also Flipping Their Lid (The Video Link is well worth the watch, I promise!)

1) REGULATE

Help your child to regulate and calm their stress responses, Fight/Flight/Freeze, offer soothing and reassurance.

We all know you cannot reason of even get through to anyone, let alone a child once that massive meltdown has started. They are crying, yelling and just gone primal in a way. They have “Flipped Their Lid”, and if we can keep our calm cool and collected selves, it will help them. Yes, if they are in trouble you don’t want to caudle them, but you also cannot explain to them why you are upset with them while they are in mid-crisis meltdown and you are yelling your feelings. So we need to just find ways to calm them to a point of getting through, talking to them soothingly, giving them a quiet space where they can find a way to self sooth and breath out their issues with you still near in some manner. I know it will take a lot, because as much as I hate to admit it I am a yeller and I have to work very hard to regulate that in order to help my children as best as I can.

2) RELATE

Connect with your child through attuned, sensitive relationship. Empathise and validate the child’s feelings so they feel seen, heard and understood.

While no one ever goes through the exact same situations in life, we all go through similar ones. And because most people parent in the same or similar styles that they were raised in (not as a rule) some of the things our kids are going through might be on par with what we went through. Use those experiences to help your child calm and regulate themselves in a way.

“Yes, I know you are upset because I took the beads away. But when Mama was little like you she had one stuck up her nose, and that was really scary for mama.”

Small children, even older children, while in the process of calming down, will feel better about themselves in that situation knowing they aren’t alone, that what they are feeling in that situation is normal. Isn’t that what we are all looking for honestly, to know we aren’t alone. And contrary to the theme of pictures I am not talking aliens in space.

3) REASON

Once your child is calm and connected they are able to fully engage in learning. Help them reflect, remember, articulate and be Self-assured.

Even as adults, we need this kind of assurance, I call it being talked down. Even though we have passed the meltdown part, we still need to discuss what had happened prior and how we should take some deep breaths, talk about different calming methods they can use later on. Like the Smell the Flower, blow out the candle, those deep in breaths through the nose followed by slow breaths out the mouth like you are slowly blowing out the candle. I use an aid with my own son it is a picture of a candle on side and a flower on the other, mounted to a straw or popsicle stick as a visual aid. There are calming bottles you can use, clear school glue, water and a bunch of fine and coarse glitter in a clear water bottle. You shake it up and the kids focus on the glitter while it settles and it will calm the mind. Heck I use it from time to time for me. And if the kids see you as the parent using the same techniques they may be more inclined to use them themselves when they feel discombobulated.

I really hope some of this has helped you in a way, please let me know if you have any other ideas or strategies that work in your house hold.

RELEASE BLITZ: Neat By Kandi Steiner

RELEASE BLITZ: Neat By Kandi Steiner

“Rival families. Deep secrets. Exact opposites who can’t help but cross all the lines. Neat will leave you thirsty for more Becker Brothers!” — bestselling author Staci Hart

Neat, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Kandi Steiner is LIVE!

My life is over.

I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studioI’d always dreamed of.

It can’t be that bad, I thought.

Until I realized my new boss was Logan Becker.

The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason.

The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee.

But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear.

Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over.

And Logan’s will be, too.

Neat is a stand-alone book in the Becker Brothers Series.

Excerpt:

“So… I guess we should just be…” Logan swallowed. “Friends?”

The way he asked it, the way his eyebrows bent together, his lips flattening — I knew it was a hollow offer.

I nodded. “Sure. Of course.” A smile that felt like a wave of nausea found my lips. “Friends.”

Logan watched me, and I watched him, both of us waiting for something more. It seemed like there were a million unborn words between us, floating in the air, waiting for us to reach out and grab them and bring them to life. When a long moment of silence had passed, Logan bit the inside of his cheek, picking up his highlighter he’d abandoned on the desk when I’d walked in like he was ready to get back to work.

“But,” I said, and his eyes snapped to mine, the highlighter frozen over the page. “I mean… there’s another option, isn’t there?”

Logan dropped the highlighter, leaning back again. “There is?”

“I’m just saying,” I said, voice shakier than I wanted it to be in that moment. I took a sip of my coffee, shrugging. “What if we kept things low key… casual… just between us?” My eyes found his again. “It is what it is, and it’s not what it’s not. Right? No need for anyone to know.”

“Low key,” Logan repeated, like he was tasting the words, checking them for poison with his tongue. “So, friends… with benefits.”

I snorted. “If you want to be twenty-one about it, sure.”

Logan nodded, over and over, just a slight movement of his chin up and down as he considered it. I watched him as he stood, and I expected him to start pacing the office, but instead, he crossed it, closing his door and turning to face me.

His eyes swept over me, sparking a fire low in my stomach.

He wet his lips.

He took a step.

And then I was out of my chair, meeting him in the middle, the two of us crashing together like magnets.

His hands weaved into my hair when he captured my mouth with his own, both of us sighing on an inhale, moaning on the exhale, leaning into each other like we could somehow melt together completely. All the electricity I’d felt that night came back like a tidal wave, and I surrendered to the waves, letting them drown me. I wanted him to fill my lungs, to conquer every breath, to imprison me.

It was a kiss that told me we were both lying. We both wanted more.

But if it was a choice between this, or nothing at all?

There wasn’t a decision to make — not where I was concerned. It had already been made for us, without either of us having a say, without either of us having an ounce of control to throw this story in another direction.

We were inevitable, me and him.

And maybe we knew it from the start.

Logan backed me up to the desk, and when my ass hit it, I hiked both legs up, wrapping them around his waist and squeezing. He hissed, sucking my bottom lip between his teeth and releasing it with a pop, his hips rolling against mine. I broke the kiss to let out a gasp, and his mouth was on my neck in an instant, sucking and biting, my eyes rolling back at the contact.

He paused with his lips by my ear, breathing heavy. “I think this could work for me,” he whispered, running his tongue over my ear lobe. “This… friends agreement.” His hands squeezed where they held my hips, and the familiar pressure sent flashes of Saturday night barreling through my memory. I gasped, mouth still hanging open when he kissed my neck over to the opposite ear to whisper again. “What do you think?”

Against the voice inside me warning me not to, I ran my fingers through his hair, gripping those dark strands and pulling his lips back to mine.

That kiss was an answer.

That kiss was a lie.

And distantly, I realized that kiss might be the biggest mistake of my life.

REVIEW: Nothing But A Dare By Molly O’Hare

REVIEW: Nothing But A Dare By Molly O’Hare

SYNOPSIS

Nothing But a Dare is a second chance, enemies to lovers rom-com with a curvy, will punch you in the throat heroine, and a hero that will push every button she has for fun. Oh, and did I mention there’s a cat that wears turtleneck sweaters?

After what could possibly be the world’s worst morning, the last thing Abbie expected to see as she walked into her meeting was her childhood nemesis.

Hunter. Freaking. James.

The title of world’s worst morning now seemed like an understatement.

When Abbie walked into the conference room looking like a complete mess, and still killed her presentation, Hunter knew he’d made the right decision signing on with WCM Advertising. He was there for one reason, and one reason only. Abbie was going to be his, even if he had to dare her every step of the way.

Game on.

MY REVIEW

** I was given the ARC in exchange for my Honest Review **

This is a sweet, childhood love that in a way makes no sense but, makes perfect sense all at the same time. Abbie is working her way up the ladder at an add agency when her very first true heart break walks in effectively derails her life. He had no intention of that, all Hunter wanted was to tell her that he had come to terms and loved her.

But old habits die hard and they fell into an old rhythm of teasing and dares. After an impromptu work trip that forced Abbie to face all her fears things change between the two of them and the truth comes to light.

I love books that have such a deep rooted love that goes far back between the leading people. But this one does have parts that are off putting. While the story itself is amazing, but how Abbies carries herself bothers me, no matter the feelings inside a professional woman would not launch herself across the room at someone and start wrestling with them. Her character bothered me in the sense that it feels like she never really did grow up.

That may be off putting for some readers but it was ok enough for me to set that aside and read the book and enjoy it all for what it is.

I do recommend this Book to others who love childhood romances, growing up and soft sweet ones.

RELEASE BLITZ: Invincible By Elizabeth SaFleur

RELEASE BLITZ: Invincible By Elizabeth SaFleur

People say a broken heart can kill, but it’s really the secrets that take you down. ~Alexander Rockingham II

Invincible, an all-new powerful and emotional ménage love story, featuring a sexy and dominant silver fox from Elizabeth SaFleur, is available now!

Alexander Rockingham keeps the secrets of Washington DC’s most elite players, but none are as devastating as his own. Forty years ago, the Wynters ripped away everyone he’d loved. When the family’s matriarch dies, he completes a promise to walk through the gates of their Connecticut estate as the owner, and with sledgehammer in hand, erase the name of Wynter. He also gives his beloved Charles—in the family graveyard—the goodbye he’d been denied decades earlier.

He didn’t expect to find Rebecca, the third in their lovers’ trio, standing there. He didn’t expect the man who is helping him settle the Wynter estate to offer himself to him and Rebecca as a stopgap to recapture a happier time. He didn’t expect to fall in love again—with both of them.

But sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes ghosts from the past are just too strong to counter even for three people united in beating them.

Invincible is a polyamory/menage (M/F/M and M/M/F) romance stand-alone Elite Doms of Washington novel.

I loved how he made me feel so wanted, so desired. We were both quickly getting carried away, forgetting that we were out in broad daylight, until a car drove by only a few yards away. While I found it doubtful that they could see anything, Gus pulled back from our embrace and said, “It’s time to go.” “What?” I gasped. “I thought we had all afternoon.” “We did.” He eased me off of him and quickly started to stand. Once he was on his feet, he extended his hand to me and said, “But, then you went and kissed me like that, and now, we have to go.” “We do?” As he pulled me to my feet, he answered, “Yeah. We do.” “Why’s that?” I teased. “Cause I need to bury myself inside my woman, and I have no intention of doing that out here where God and anyone else can see.” He placed his hands on my hips and pulled me close. “What you have going on is for my eyes only.” “Oh.” “Now, get that sexy ass of yours on that bike,” he ordered with the sexiest smirk I’d ever seen. I nodded, grabbed the blanket off the ground, and rushed over to his motorcycle. I was about to put on my helmet when Gus came up to me and said, “You know what?” “What?” “I’m pretty crazy about you.” I’d heard him say those words to me many times , but there was something in his tone that made my chest tighten, like a hot dagger had just impaled my heart. My voice trembled as I repeated his words back to him. “I’m pretty crazy about you, too, Gus.”

REVIEW: Hated You Then By M. Robinson

REVIEW: Hated You Then By M. Robinson

SYNOPSIS

I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.

Before she owned me.
Hated Me.
Needed me.

Before I hated her…

Things were simple.
We had an understanding.

Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.

Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.

I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.

She was mine.
Always had been.
Always would be.
Nothing altered that.

Not how much I hated her.
Not how much she hated me.

Especially, not how much I hated…

That I LOVED her. 

MY REVIEW

** I was given the ARC in exchange for my Honest Review **

This is a book that left me emotionally hung over! My heart was broken, my eyes hurt from trying not to cry. It was so very raw and gritty and makes you remember back to those high emotions of a teenager. Then it shows you things no child or teenager should go through and gives you a front row seat to that turmoil and heartbreak.

I love this book on so many levels, from the complex and downright strange relationship Harley and Jackson have, to the strange and blended extended family that they are surrounded by. There are some parts that dont fully make sense because this is a continuation series, is takes over on the new generation of the Good ol Boys, as I never read those books, it was harder to get the full relationship, but it didn’t really make it to hard to fully get what was going on either.

There is so much raw and amazing energy placed in this book, and it fully depicts the rabbit hole Jackson is falling down and why, as well as it doesn’t paint all the adults as nieve either. They are all in the know as to what is going on but you can see they are working on things in the background and they are no longer the main focus of the story. It is about Jackson and ‘hate filled” relationship with Harley, starting from when they were little up until a full breaking point where we are left wondering what will happen in the next book.

I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!
