Lockdowns, broken routines, no child care, school being cancelled, and the stress of uncertain times during a pandemic is causing a lot of anxiety for parents and children.
Having more kids in the house than is typical at once, not having any down time, trying to manage the age difference between kids who are used to playing with same-age peers– these things are challenging to maneuver.
I wrote this book hoping that it would help our neurodivergent children– autistic, ADHD, SPD, and more– better understand that they don’t always need to win, or be perfect, or have things go exactly as planned in order to be at peace with them and even to enjoy them.
