We are deep into planning our October parenting of highly sensitive children and teens workshop!  To add to the learning and excitement I will be featuring articles in the newsletter related to parenting highly sensitive children and teens. Enjoy!

The older I get the more I appreciate emotional intelligence in the lives of others, animals and everything Divine.

As many of you know I am a bit obsessed with good coffee. I find it a powerful gift of sorts yet as the old saying goes “too much of anything, even good, yields trouble.” I never knew how it “works” til I read this article.

Sometimes when days have felt too hard or too much to handle I turn on something funny like Raymond.  This is one of my favorite scenes. The kids learn their parents (who drive them crazy) are moving into a retirement home and their excitement bursts!  (Watch when Ray accidentally throws Debra into the fridge.)

Sometimes it takes an individual many decades to turn within, listen to what one hears, and then make choices. 

“Individuation is, above all, about being able to hear your inner voice or voices through all the inner and outer noise. Some of us get caught up in demands from others. These may be real responsibilities or may be the common ideas of what makes for success—money, prestige, security. Then there are the pressures others can bring to bear on us because we are so unwilling to displease anyone. Eventually, many, if not most, HSPs are probably forced into what I call “liberation,” even if it doesn’t happen until the second half of life. They tune in to the inner question and the inner voices rather than the questions others are asking them to answer.”
