Once again I can't get the video on my Blog s if you go to this site you will see a three minute Blog about the Highly Sensitive Person - I think it is an adult with SPD - sensory perception disorder.
The second web site - if anyone wants to check it out - lists questions or a test to see if you are a highly sensitive person.
My little guy is in trouble at school again - for self control. He wants so bad to be in self control and he just can't. My daughter is thinking medicine, but personally I don't want him on medicine. We go to his Developmental Ped later on this month.
I'm sure I am a Highly Sensitive Person. And yes, while I have struggled (and I am not perfect), but I am a solid person. I think he can make it too.
So my daughter and I don't see things eye to eye right now. That's okay too. The ultimate responsibility is hers not mine. (I keep telling myself).
Now I am venting here - I consider myself smart. I was not pushed the way they push kids now-a-days for these da-- (excuse my French) test. The kids can't talk in class, they have to be quiet when they eat, the recess is short - and I ask you - are the test scores rising here in Georgia (and I love Georgia), but they are not.
Do you think - just for a minute - that maybe 'playing' and 'moving' are important in the learning equation?
I know he has to 'learn' self control - but if they would let him move and get his wiggles out - maybe he could control himself.
