Memorable Moments:

“If these kids could do well, they would. If they can, they will.”

”Look at the behavior differently.”

“For kids specifically with ADHD, we know their nervous system is really hyper-sensitive.”

“Our child often can’t control what they’re doing.”

”The aim of that is to simply leave your child with the experience of feeling seen, heard, soothed, validated, and just acknowledged for all parts of themselves.”

”We are actually the container for our child’s nervous system.”

”When our mindset shifts, that’s going to guide our actions, and it’s going to guide how we approach it.”

”Children learn about their experience of the world through our experience of what we think their experience of the world is.”

”Play is one way that children actually soothe their nervous system.”

“If we can ground ourselves in compassion and empathy, that’s going to drive how we respond or react in those meltdowns.”

”If you feel like you’re running out of resource, it’s okay to take a break.”

”Be your child’s external regulator. When they can’t regulate themselves, we know from neuroscience, they need to borrow your nervous system in that moment. So if you can stay present, they’re going to use your breath, your heart rate, your tone of voice to calm themselves. And that’s going to help them feel safe and that’s going to decrease the fight or flight.”
