BonBon Break: Helping My Highly Sensitive Children Carry Their Emotions

BonBon Break, the online magazine just for mothers like us, has focused on the theme of filling your bucket this month. “Buckets?” I hear you cry, “but you love buckets Amanda!”

Bonbon Break

Indeed I do, and when I saw the call for posts on the theme I quickly got to work.  And I am delighted to say that BonBon Break liked my family’s story too and has chosen to share my essay about the role buckets play in my highly sensitive family.

Giving a bucket to my eldest son when he was four was a huge breakthrough moment for our family. Buckets have probably been the number one most successful tool to help with emotions in our home over the last four years – hop over to BonBon Break to find out why.

And whilst you are there take a peek at some other great #FillYourBucket themed posts:
