Help Your Child Avoid Summer Tantrums with These 5 Tips from Brain Balance


Confession time: I absolutely hate summer sometimes. I know—summer is supposed to be full of blue skies, popsicles, and sprinklers. But it can be a lot of pressure to keep the kids occupied when school is out. It's hard for me to set the kids up with activities that keep them learning and engaged.

It can be particularly tough for parents of kids with behavioral, social, or learning difficulties. My mother is currently a single parent of a young son with Autism and ADHD. The diagnosis was hard and since then I am constantly trying to learn more ways to help them.

So I partnered with Brain Balancea drug-free, holistic approach to addressing the challenges of behavioral, social, or learning disabilities—to try some of their summer activities, and to share a little bit about their philosophy. And let me tell you, their activities actually work, even with Princess A who doesn't have a learning difficulty (just tween hormones - yikes).  I'm so excited to keep this momentum going into the summer and beginning with my brother!

Do you feel Uninvited?

Did you know that even when you’re overlooked by others, you are handpicked by God. In her new book, Uninvited, New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst will help you live like you really believe that truth! I am delighted to be reviewing it today.

The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection—from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

I feel like as women this is something most of us struggle with, especially introverts like myself. I didn't realize how much my past rejections have affected my relationships today. Through reading this book readers will become more aware of these feelings and
  • Release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process their hurt. 
  • Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence. 
  • Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging. 
  • Stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside." 
  • End the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue
The book is easy to read, filled with bibcal truths and Lysa's wonderful sense of humor. This is a book that I'd give to any of my girl friends (and probably read with my daughter when she's a bit older.)
