E160: Overcoming Rejection Sensitivity as a Parent with ADHD and Demonstrating it for Your Children Too
Manage episode 341912724 series 2913393
I recently got rejected from something that mattered to me. And it stunk. RSD (rejection sensitivity dysphoria) and trauma response all rolled into one giant ball of suck.
One of the hardest parts of parenting is talking to our kids about hard things, like rejection, sadness, and disappointment especially when we don’t feel like we are good at those skills ourselves.
When disappointment strikes, how do we work through those feelings? And how do we teach our kids to do the same?
Here’s how I worked through the sadness recently and explained the tough stuff to my kids.
It’s time to take care of a very important person in the family: Mom.
We’ll relax, rest, have fun, and build friendships with mamas who think like us. Plus learn how to take care of our impressive yet ever-moving brains.
