Talking to your children about their issues w/o making them feel bad
My oldest & youngest have the most things going on - ADD, OCD, sensory issues, food issues out the wazoo, likely methylation issues & more. My oldest has been going to OT for sensory issues. She's not into it at all. I told her the things they're giving us to do will help her to feel better - she says she's fine the way she is, she feels fine & is good enough. The younger one doesn't like to try anything new (which is understandable since I've always been so cautious & taught him to be cautious - he's almost 5). I'm trying to find vitamins & other supplements right now for the almost 5 yo to take after a urine test determined he's got a lot going on that B vitamin supps will hopefully help with, provided I can get them into him.
So, what ways have you all found to talk w/ your children about doing things to help their bodies without making them feel bad about them? Any/all suggestions welcome.
Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.
