What is Grounding?
Put simply: it’s Plugging back in to the Earth.
Imagine grounding like recharging your phone.
It’s NECESSARY every single day.
These are LOTS of things that drain your child’s ‘battery’. Each child is different. But these seem to be some of the most common:
1. TV/ Screen time
2. Shopping centres/ Crowded places
3. Sugar/ certain foods
4. Too much indoor time
5. Being thrown out of routine
What does it look like when your child is ungrounded?
<<<< Remember that overwhelmed child at the supermarket that you couldn’t get through to? >>>>
:: They might take on a glazed look in their eyes almost like ‘the lights are on, but no one’s home’
:: They might turn their volume RIGHT up to try and drown out the ‘chaos’
