Example text

The “meltdown” In our house, we refer to a severe bout of anxiety as a “meltdown” because, well, that’s exactly what happens. Our son might begin to sob uncontrollably and even fall to the floor. Make no mistake about it, when these things happen it upsets everyone in the house. At these times it is essential for a parent to keep his cool and to provide, through body language, tone of voice, facial expressions and every other possible way, the comfort the child is obviously desperate for. This may be in the form of a hug, a tender word or just quiet accompaniment.

The NLD child often asks for the rationale behind these for understanding and clarification, not to be defiant or impudent. 2. Severe bouts of anxiety, or meltdowns, may happen frequently. It is important for other family members to stay calm and even-tempered to help the child regain composure. 3. The NLD child can sometimes experience low self-esteem. Some strategies to enhance self-esteem include refraining from put-downs, inclusion in household chores, and avoidance of colloquialisms, vernacular and sarcasm when speaking to the child.

The pool was now quiet and empty — he could have it all to himself, but that wasn’t what he wanted at all. I sat at the edge, a fake smile spread across my face as if my swimsuit was too tight, now trying to encourage Jimmy to swim with me.
