This post really spoke to me. Fuss tends to be overly dramatic and if things are not going his way he can tend toward negativity. It’s rather heartbreaking to see in such a small guy. I was thrilled when I read this.
I tried many of the suggestions in this post and I’ve noticed a huge difference. The most noticeable being after we saw the naturopath. I certainly never said he was negative to her, since I don’t see him that way, but there’s a change nonetheless. He wakes up happy and bouncy.
One suggestion in the post is not to react to the ‘blahs’ when they come up. I find this so hard! I’m trying though. It’s a bit easier since Bug is such a tiny ray of sunshine, making it hard to be dragged too far down with Fuss.
The bedtime suggestion in the post is also a big one here. If sent off to his room to go to sleep, he’ll stay up reading or acting out various stories we’ve read during the day. However, if I let him snuggle with me while I read to myself, he’s out in minutes.
Parenting a sensitive (which I think is a much more positive word for this) child is hard work, but so worth it!!!
Enjoying the journey, Amanda
